Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs put the “wild” in Saturday night’s NFL Wild Card Game.

The acrobatic play occurred in the fourth quarter of the American Football Conference matchup between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Down 23-15, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger attempted a pass to running back Ben Tate in an effort to close the gap. Instead, Suggs ruined Roethlisberger’s pass and dashed his hopes of moving forward in the playoffs with an interception that “goes down as one of the craziest plays in NFL history,” Yahoo Sports reported.

While diving toward the ground to intercept the pass, Suggs tumbled while juggling the football between his legs to retain possession.

The play was captured in the following Vine video, which has been viewed more than 204,000 times and counting.

The Ravens won 30-17 and will now face the New England Patriots on Jan. 10.
