Harris was able to grab Matt in time, an open-field tackle,
and use his own legs to wrap Matt’s legs in a scissors grip, to keep him from getting up and running just like a wild animal into the woods where he certainly would have died.

My understanding about the highlighted part is : Harris used an open-field tackle and grabbed Matt in time, right? Thanks.
