BOOM! Justin Tucker isn't just the best kicker in the NFL, he's a tackling machine.

Alright, well maybe not a tackling machine. But Tucker did lay down a hit that could have very well saved this return from being a touchdown.

As you can see from the video the returner, cornerback Justin Gilbert, took a shot once he hit the ground. His helmet bounced off the turf. Gilbert, one of the team's few healthy corners with Joe Haden out due to a concussion himself, laid down on the field for a bit while being evaluated by the training staff. He was brought into the locker room with a reported concussion.

While we hope that Gilbert is alright, it's nice to see that Tucker is able to lay the hit stick.
