The first encounter between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins wasn’t a pleasant one for the Black and Gold, but there was a major highlight which came out of the game, and at the time, had fans feeling like the Steelers could win (rather than the eventual end result).

Pittsburgh had just lucked out on a third and ten play from their own 36-yard line, where Ben Roethlisberger was sacked: the Dolphins were penalized twice, with an Unnecessary Roughness call being enforced for 15 yards and giving the Steelers a fresh set of downs.

On the ensuing first and ten, Steelers receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey takes a pitch from Roethlisberger on an end-around. DHB braces for a tackle, but when he’s not brought down, he displays the world class speed that has been a staple throughout his career.
