JaCoby Stevens' monster hit on Amari Rodgers looked so painful in slow motion

Whenever a wide receiver goes down the middle, they’re taught to anticipate a hard hit. Well, it’s even worse when the quarterback misses the throw high, and JaCoby Stevens is the safety on the other end.

It’s not going to be a pleasant experience for the receiver.

During the first half of the CFP National Championship Game between LSU and Clemson, Trevor Lawrence launched a pass on the run down the middle of the field to wide receiver Amari Rodgers. The throw was well too high for Rodgers, but Stevens didn’t care.

The LSU safety unloaded with a huge hit right to the back of Rodgers.

In full speed, the hit looked painful enough. But wait until the hit got slowed down — and from other angles. I don’t know how Rodgers was OK after that.

His whole body basically buckled to the contact.

Stevens was not penalized for the hit.
