Watch: St. Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley throws Clay Matthews to ground

Sunday October 11th, 2015

St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley displayed his strength during Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews charged towards the line of scrimmage, attempting to leap over Gurley. The running back stood his ground, lifting his arms up to block Matthews and eventually throwing him to the ground.

Gurley was a first-round pick for St. Louis in the 2015 NFL Draft. 

Gurley made his first start in just his second NFL game last week against the Cardinals where he rushed for 146 yards on 15 carries.
