Kevin Mac Allister shows he’s in NFL Playoffs spirit with exceptional open-field tackle

With the AFC and NFC Championships on the horizon the football spirit is at an all-time high. The feeling is apparently contagious with one case of football fever spotted in Belgium after a great Kevin Mac Allister tackle.

Argentine defender Mac Allister received a straight red card for a tackle during a Belgian Cup game between powerhouses Union Saint-Gilloise and Anderlecht.

Mac Allister’s teammate gave a half-hearted effort to bring down an opponent in on goal so the 26-year-old showed everyone how it’s done.

Great form! That’s how you tackle. Straight out of the original Ted Lasso video from NBC.

Mac Allister’s heroics did have a positive impact for his side. The tackle took place outside of the box, so Anderlecht didn’t get a penalty kick. Union Saint-Gilloise then managed to hold out for a 2-1 lead therefore Mac Allister’s tackle might have saved the game.

Defenders for the Lions, 49ers, Chiefs and Ravens better take notes.
