Troy Polamalu is good for a few mind-blowing plays a year due to his incredible anticipation of the opposing snap counts, but on Sunday he was just a little too eager to get the jump on the line of scrimmage.

During an extra point to tie the game, Polamalu hurdled both lines and had a free run at the Ravens kicker. Unfortunately, he was just a wee bit excited and was way offsides.

Despite the fact that it was a penalty, it was a hilarious moment that ignited the crowd and gave everyone a good laugh as the Sunday afternoon action came to an end.

Here is a GIF of Polamalu’s impressive leap, via CJ Fogler on Twitter:
