Indianapolis Colts guard Quinton Nelson has made his mark on the NFL time and time again during his rookie season, and one player that felt that intimately this Sunday was Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso. After savaging Alonso on a block, Nelson proceeded to humiliate him through the age-old NSFW practice of teabagging.
While we're not going to condone what Nelson did after the play, he's developing into a great offensive lineman who could be a perennial Pro Bowler for the Colts. Plus, Alonso is one of the least respectful and dirtiest players in the league, so we're not crying for him.
Nelson's breakthrough campaign has some clamoring for him to be the first offensive lineman to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, though he faces some stiff competition, especially from New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

Still, awards be damned; Nelson is the real deal. The Colts hit the jackpot selecting him sixth overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
