Dunta Robinson Crushes Jeremy Maclin With Helmet-First Hit In Falcons-Eagles Game (VIDEO)

This footage should look familiar to Philadelphia Eagles fans.

During the third quarter of Sunday night's game, Falcons defensive back Dunta Robinson delivered a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on an Eagles receiver.

With the Eagles looking to build on their 24-21 lead, Michael Vick fired a laser to Jeremy Maclin in the middle of the field. As Maclin reeled in the catch, he was leveled by Robinson, who led with his hat and never even attempted to use his arms to wrap up the receiver.

"Unbelievable! Unbelievable that he has done it again," NBC broadcaster Chris Collinsworth said after the play as Maclin sprawled on the turf. Collinsworth was referring to last season's game between the two teams, when Robinson made a similar hit on DeSean Jackson.

Fortunately, Maclin appeared to be okay and returned later in the game. Despite the big hit, Maclin finished with 13 receptions for 171 yards and two touchdowns. But the Falcons went on to win 35-31. (WATCH HIGHLIGHTS HERE)

"He's two for two now," Maclin said of the hit. "Fortunately, it wasn't as bad as Jack's was last year. I guess we'll see what Roger Goodell has in store for him."

Last year, Jackson suffered a severe concussion and some memory loss after Robinson's hit. Robinson was fined $50,000. It was later reduced to $25,000.

After the game, Robinson said he thought the hit was legal and that "there will not be any further repercussions."

Others disagree.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen suggested that Robinson could even be suspended. Gregg Rosenthal of ProFootballTalk also suggested a possible suspension since Robinson is a repeat offender.

UPDATE: The NFL fined Robinson $40,000 for a "violation of player safety rules."
