In a wild and snowy third quarter against the Miami Dolphins, the Pittsburgh Steelers needed a spark. Luckily for the Steelers defense, veteran safety Troy Polamalu pulled off a vintage play by intercepting a pass from Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and taking it to the house.

As Polamalu was making his way towards the goal line, Polamalu made an incredible leap and went soaring into the endzone despite pressure from the Dolphins defense.

Just a few minutes prior, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took a Ben Roethlisberger pass for a touchdown and the two quick scores gave the Steelers the lead.
