Thanksgiving is tomorrow. For many men in America, Thanksgiving Day not only means eating turkey and stuffing, it also means playing a pick-up game of football in the morning with friends and family. Last year, we covered how to throw a perfect football spiral. This year we look at how to tackle. Sure, most Turkey Bowl games start out as touch-football matches, but if your buddies are like mine, those friendly games quickly morph into full-contact showdowns. To help you with your D-Fence!, we put together this illustrated guide on how to tackle like a pro with advice from NFL player Mychal Kendricks. He’s a defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles and took some time out of his busy schedule to share these tips with us. Enjoy!
