Watch: Danielle Hunter sacks Blake Bortles one-handed in Vikings-Jags game

Erm...wow.

Pre-season pre-shmeason, Danielle Hunter always comes to play.

The Vikings' defensive end was giving the Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive line a torrid time at U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday.

And it culminated in a quite insane sack of the Jaguars' QB, Blake Bortles, who was pulled down by Hunter one-handed.

Hunter was still being blocked when he reached over and grabbed Bortles by the scruff of his neck and showed extraordinary strength to drag him down like a schoolboy.

While there remain concerns over the effectiveness of the Vikings O-line, it looks like the Vikings D is as strong as ever.

They held Bortles to 159 passing yards, zero touchdowns and an interception.
