In the early 2000s, Michael Vick and Troy Polamalu were two of the most exciting players in the league. It might take two players of that caliber to make a random NFL preseason game must-see TV, but this throwback clip from 2011 is still pretty incredible.

The fact that Vick can even get this throw off is impressive enough. He makes two would-be tacklers miss before firing an absolute laser off one foot. It wasn't exactly an accurate pass, as it was tipped and intercepted, but not many QBs could've kept that play alive as long as he did.

Polamalu is able to pick the pass off with ease, and he's off to the races. He weaves his way through a sea of defenders before Vick comes at him like a heat-seeking missile and actually knocks him off of his feet.

Philadelphia Eagles fans had to love seeing that level heart from Vick in what was ultimately a rather meaningless preseason game.
