Steelers Almost Pull Off Miracle Victory… Almost

Today, the Pittsburgh Steelers came inches of sideline away from pulling off one of the greatest plays in NFL history, one that could have even saved the Steelers season given an unlikely scenario of losses by other AFC teams.

Trailing 34-28 on the final play of the game against the Miami Dolphins, the Steelers pulled the ol’ lateral frenzy trick and actually managed to eventually get the ball into speedy wide receiver Antonio Brown’s hands as he raced down the sideline for what appeared to be the unprobable winning touchdown. But with about a yard of space between him and the nearest defender, Brown got a little too close to the sideline and stepped out of bounds about 13 yards before the end zone.

What could have been one of the greatest plays in Steelers history will now be a tale that will repeatedly bring cringes to the faces of Pittsburgh fans for years to come.
