Throughout the NFL offseason, things can be a tad slow. In between major events like the NFL Scouting Combine, NFL Free Agency and the NFL Draft, fans are forced to grab anything and everything they can related to football.

For some, it means they turn to television shows like Sports Jeopardy.

Well, if you were watching a recent episode of the sports-based television program, you saw a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers as an answer to one of the many questions.

To be more specific, it wasn’t Heyward who was the question, but what was written on his eye black in 2015 when he was paying homage to his late father “Iron Head” Heyward.

The answer reads:

“In 2015 the NFL’s Cam Heyward honored his late father by putting this nickname on his eyeblack.”

Clearly, the person recording this knew the answer was “iron head”. You can see the actual eye black used in the picture attached to this article.

Check the video below, as Heyward caught wind of the event and posted it on his official Twitter page:
