It’s pretty rare to see an offensive guard earning NFL Rookie of the Month honors, but that’s exactly what Quenton Nelson did for his work in October.

Putting a cherry on top of this achievement, the Indianapolis Colts rookie laid a block on Jacksonville Jaguars safety Barry Church on Sunday that’s among the most impressive we’ve seen in a long time.

Former NFL offensive lineman turned analyst Geoff Schwartz highlighted the devastating block on Sunday, posting a clip on Twitter.

The Colts later posted their own version of the finishing move, complete with audio that shows just how intimidating Nelson is, even before he arrives at his target.


He’s truly an elite player already, and the Colts are starting to heat up running the ball of late in large part due to his prowess plowing running lanes.

After the video of this block circulated around social media, many chimed in with their reactions.
