Run of the year? Chris Carson gets flipped, lands on his feet, keeps going

NFL running backs hurdle defenders all the time. It’s a badge of honor to leap some fool and leave him grasping at air. But Seattle’s Chris Carson upped the game with his play in the Seahawks’ victory against Carolina on Sunday.

Check that out. He got completely flipped over, landed on his feet and kept going on a 15-yard run. Seattle would go on to score and pull ahead of Carolina in the crucial battle for playoff seeding.

There aren’t style points in the NFL, but if there were, we’d have a perfect 10 right here.
