Late in the second quarter on Monday night, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie receiver Diontae Johnson came through with a highlight-reel worthy touchdown.

Catching a simple slant from Mason Rudolph, Johnson found himself to be wide open in the middle of the field. Then, the speedy youngster hit the afterburners, juked a defender to the ground and powered his way into the end zone for a sensational 45-yard touchdown.

This was a crucial touchdown for the Steelers, who were down 14-3 prior to Johnson’s spectacular score. After the extra point, the Dolphins led 14-10 heading into halftime.
