The Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t returned a punt all the way back to the house since 2015, but against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday that changed.

The score gave his side a 10-0 lead, with ultimately helped Mike Tomlin’s men record a 23-17 win. They remain second in the AFC North, with an impressive wildcard spot and a route to the play-offs definitely still on the cards.

Defeat for Arizona, meanwhile, keeps them bottom of the NFC West with 3-9.
