Would a Tyrannosaur be able to seize a portion of the prey animal in 
its jaws, clamp down hard and use its weight and muscles to bring the 
prey animal to ground, where it could then disembowel it or deliver 
a bite to the neck?  With that impressive set of jaws, this does not seem 
like an unlikely scenario.  Possible?
