Darren Sproles flips Aldon Smith on back, cannot avoid tackle

Darren Sproles might be a little dude, but with the right leverage, even little guys can flip big guys. As he came out of the backfield with the ball, Sproles engaged 49ers OLB Aldon Smith and managed to flip Smith on his back. Fortunately for 49ers fans, Smith held on to Sproles' jersey with all his might and slowed him enough for other defenders to come over and get the tackle. It didn't stop the Saints from eventually getting a touchdown, but it was solid work by Smith to not lose Sproles.
