To say Steelers tight end Vance McDonald unleashed a stiff arm on Bucs defensive back Chris Conte en route to a 75-yard touchdown would not even come close to describing what exactly happened. It was vicious. It was disrespectful. It was exhilarting. It was beautiful.

Naturally, Twitter's reaction to this play was swift and over the top, as it should be.

Even McDonald's teammate, Cam Heyward, lost his mind during the play.

McDonald himself was impressed with Twitter's performance.

As for what McDonald was thinking on the play? It was pretty straight forward.

Meanwhile, not only did the Bucs' Chris Conte have a rough game, but so did a guy who shares the same name and got bombarded with tweets all night.

2. If you haven't seen this 7-year-old girl belt out the national anthem at an L.A. Galaxy game Sunday night, watch it now and stick with it until the end. You won't be disappointed.

3. If you had the under in Saturday's Wisconsin-Iowa game, you won't want to watch this week's installment of Scott Van Pelt's Bad Beats.

4. Cavs coach Ty Lue is just like everyone else when one of their friends tries to put them on Instagram Live.

5. Well, this was not nice. An Instagram model who allegedly had a thing with Jimmy Garappolo before he went on the date with an adult film star seemed to enjoy his torn ACL injury on Sunday.
