Did he actually pull out a knife and fork and start eating him? No, so technical
ly you are correct. But watch the centers first move, he’s really just trying to block Tonga straight on, but Tonga hits him so hard and fast that he is immediately moving backwards. He bulldozes straight through the Blocker and makes the TFL. The defender ends up 3-4 yards in back field and on the ground, so I think the word devoured if fairly appropriate.
