Jared Allen, known to be an avid hunter in his free time, found himself the perfect camouflage as he approached Eli Manning for a sack: Giants offensive lineman Will Beatty.
With Manning and the winless New York Giants hosting the Vikings on "Monday Night Football," Allen pulled off what may be the most memorable sack of the year. Allen moved the 6' 6" 319 pound tackle back toward Manning a step at a time. Once Eli was within arm's reach, Allen stuck out his right arm -- reaching it around Beatty -- and pulled him down.
In order to better appreciate the impressive effort by the 5-time Pro Bowl selection, here are four GIFs of the sack, including one featuring Eli's deer-in-headlights reaction.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, the NFL does not award points for one-handed sacks. The Giants rolled over the sloppy Vikings 23-7 for their first win of the season.
