Before he was off making a Super Bowl appearance with the Atlanta Falcons, center Alex Mack established himself as one of the league's premier offensive linemen with the Cleveland Browns.

He made his first Pro Bowl in just his second season in the NFL, and he really got to make the most of it.

Sure, this play didn't matter as time was winding down and the NFC had dominated, but that's a moment an offensive lineman like Mack will never forget. Usually an unsung hero doing the dirty work, Mack got to be in the spotlight and have the fun of making a big play.

Big props to Mack for seizing the moment, too, as the lateral he caught looked like it was probably intended for Chiefs wideout Dwayne Bowe. There's also a great moment just before Mack scores where then New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper makes a clear business decision. He tries to bump Mack out of bounds, but he's not about to fully commit to bringing down a charging 300-pounder in an All-Star game.

The 2019 NFL season was the year of linemen touchdowns, with 7 scored, but none matched the hilarious drama of Mack's in the Pro Bowl.
