Watch: Freddie Falcon tackles a Bucs fan who ran onto the field

The mascot leveled a Buccaneers fan who ran onto the field — in pirate garb — at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta during pre-game warm-ups. The fan had successfully avoided security and other stadium workers for some time, zigzagging through the Georgia Dome before Freddie Falcon blindsided him.
