WATCH: Eli Rogers first NFL touchdown is absurd

By Michael Dixon

Eli Rogers caught the first touchdown pass of his career on Monday night against the Washington Redskins. As if hauling in the first career touchdown pass on Monday Night Football wasn’t noteworthy enough, he did so in rather unique fashion.

Ben Roethlisberger’s intended receiver was Sammie Coates, who couldn’t come up with the ball. Fortunately for the Pittsburgh Steelers, they have the tip drill down.

It was Roethlisberger’s second touchdown pass of the night.

The Steelers took a 14-6 lead into halftime.
