This sequence of events probably happened quite frequently during Alabama practices in recent years.
Running back Derrick Henry catches a swing pass or a screen pass out of the backfield, linebacker Reuben Foster reads the play, and the two come together in a large collision of mass.
The former Crimson Tide teammates, who played together inTuscaloosa in 2015 and 2016, met again on the field on Sunday, this time as opponents in an NFL game. Take a look:

What you don’t hear but can probably imagine is Nick Saban cheering on Foster for the great play and then yelling at the offense for the poor execution.
Foster got the big stop and the win, as the 49ers pulled of the upset of Henry’s Titans, winning by the score of 25-23.
