Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson is 35 years old, but he can still deliver a huge hit.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota learned that the hard way during Saturday’s AFC Wild Card Game at Arrowhead Stadium.

Tennessee was driving late in the second quarter when Johnson crushed Mariota on a third-down play. It appeared that Mariota may have fumbled, but the officials didn’t rule it that way.

Here is the play (video from Twitter user Renegade KC):

Fans loved it.
