Troy Polamalu Literally Jumps Too Soon, Called for Offsides as He Hurdles Over Baltimore Offensive Line (GIF)

The referees in the Steelers-Ravens game didn’t have a difficult time deciding who jumped first during a Baltimore extra-point attempt in the fourth quarter.

With the Ravens down by one, Troy Polamalu tried his darndest to preserve Pittsburgh’s slim lead. The safety just couldn’t hide his eagerness to get the kick underway, hurdling the entire Baltimore offensive line and getting a clear path to Ravens kicker Justin Tucker before the ball was even snapped.

Tucker eventually completed the kick, but the Steelers would go on to win, 19-16.

Check out Polamalu’s impressive leap in the GIF below, with a hat tip to @cjzero.
