Who would have ever imagined that this would happen?

On a day where Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin made history with his 90th regular season win, becoming the third of the three Steelers coaches to earn that title..cornerback William Gay tied a hollowed franchise record as well.

42 seconds into the 3rd quarter versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Gay returned a 23 yard interception for a touchdown (23-7), and solidified himself into the Steelers record books along side of one Rod Woodson for his 5th career pick 6.

Gay, the 30 year old, nine year veteran now has 10 career interceptions for Pittsburgh, half of which have been for scores. Not bad company to be in.

Congratulations Willam Gay, on joining a Steelers Legend and Hall of Famer. #HereWeGo
