Nobody would get in Vance McDonald's way as he strode toward the endzone.
Steelers tight end Vance McDonald gave Pittsburgh their first points of the night in epic fashion on Monday, unleashing an impressive stiff arm as he sprinted to the end zone for a 74-yard touchdown against the Buccaneers.
The six-year veteran caught Ben Roethlisberger's pass at Pittsburgh's 35-yard line, with Buccaneers' safety Chris Conte the lone defender in his path. McDonald didn't seem to mind, though, making quick work of Conte with a massive right-handed stiff arm to Conte's face. McDonald then went unimpeded to the end zone as Conte laid on the Tampa Bay grass.

McDonald's first touchdown of 2018 brought the Steelers within a point of Tampa Bay following a missed extra point by Chris Boswell.
The Steelers earned their first win of the season on Monday night, defeating the Buccaneers 30-27. Pittsburgh now sits at 1–1–1 on the season while Tampa Bay is 2–1.
