James Washington showed off some great strength when powering into the end zone for a touchdown against the New York Giants on Monday night.
Washington caught a 13-yard touchdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers just before halftime against the Giants. He was met with contact around the 2-yard line but impressively fought to stay on his feet and push into the end zone.
