Steelers Troy Polamalu Lights Up Jets’ Stephen Hill (GIFs)

Stephen Hill Smashed By Troy Polamalu

At Sunday’s game between the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was at least one memorable hit by the Steelers’ star safety Troy Polamalu. Of course, by “memorable,” I actually mean “extremely painful.”

The unlucky victim of the mid-air smash was the Jets’ Stephen Hill, who reportedly walked away from the collision in visible pain. Once you see the animated GIFs below, showing the incident from two different angles, you won’t be scratching your head trying to figure out why.

The aforementioned GIFs are available for your viewing pleasure below. This is why football players wear helmets and pads.
