George Kittle fights through facemask, multiple defenders for massive gain to set up game-winner
It’s official: George Kittle is not human.
The former Iowa Hawkeye and current tight end for the San Francisco 49ers is definitely a game-changer. He’s also arguably the best all-around tight end in the NFL today.
On Sunday’s game for the 49ers, Kittle proved to be clutch yet again. Facing a fourth down with under a minute to go, San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo found Kittle on a short route over the middle.
Kittle did the rest, racing down the sideline and even fighting through a facemask penalty and multiple defenders to get the 49ers in field goal range. San Francisco would later kick the game-winner as time expired.
Needless to say, this is the play of the game:

During FOX’s post-game coverage, NFL analyst and Hall of Famer Howie Long had some unique praise for Kittle:
"He looks like the kid in Pop Warner who has to have the stripe on his helmet because he can't touch the ball because he's too big." – Howie Long on TE George Kittle

All in a day’s work for Kittle.
