Cam Heyward kicked off his 10th NFL season by recording the first interception of his career.

Late in the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers' season opener against the New York Giants on Monday night, Steelers pass-rusher Bud Dupree tipped a pass by Giants quarterback Daniel Jones and Heyward – all 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds of him – played the ball perfectly to make a leaping interception in the end zone.

That milestone achievement for Heyward comes just one week after the Steelers signed Heyward to a four-year contract extension worth $65.6 million in new money that makes him the NFL's highest-paid player over 30.

The former Ohio State defensive lineman has made the Pro Bowl in each of the last three seasons and earned All-Pro honors in two of those three seasons.
