Jarvis Landry is one of the best blocking receivers in the NFL, and last night on Carlos Hyde’s touchdown run in the preseason against the Buffalo Bills, Landry laid an amazing crackback block. My question is should the crackback block be allowed in the NFL with all these other rules the NFL is enforcing?
Let’s take a trip back to October of 2016, when the Buffalo Bills played the Miami Dolphins. Jarvis Landry performed a crack back block that ended the career of Buffalo Bills draft pick Aaron Williams.
Last night, Landry hit a Bills defender again, but thankfully it did not hurt him too bad.

Last night during the Bills/Browns broadcast on NFL Network during halftime, the reporter asked Jarvis about his block and he said it was a clean block and he loves doing it. This made Bills fans upset because they had a very solid young safety retire because of a crack back block.
Well Aaron Williams had something to say about the block, and he obviously was not a big fan of it.

So I want to ask NFL fans, what do you think of the block? Do you think the crackback should be allowed in the NFL? Or is it like hitting a defenseless player? I want to know what you think. Let’s talk about it on Twitter.
