Watch: Minkah Fitzpatrick Cleanly Obliterates Tyler Huntley
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick just obliterated Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley.
Midway through the third quarter of the Steelers vs. Ravens showdown at Acrisure Stadium, the Ravens faced a crucial third-and-three near midfield.
Huntley took the snap, faked a handoff, tucked the ball, and gunned it for the marker.
Fitzpatrick said “not today.”

Now that feels like Steelers-Ravens football, doesn’t it?
The referees initially threw a flag on the play but picked it up, declaring Fitzpatrick’s hit legal and clean.
Upon further review, it does appear Fitzpatrick makes shoulder-to-shoulder contact.
The force of the hit, however, snaps Huntley’s head violently, making the hit appear more “illegal” in the process.
Following the hit, Huntley went to the Ravens’ locker room for evaluation. He was replaced by Anthony Brown, who was just elevated from the Ravens’ practice squad for the Steelers game in the wake of Lamar Jackson’s injury.
