After Tom Brady took his team down the field to give the Patriots a 27-24 lead late in the fourth quarter of today’s wild AFC showdown in Heinz Field, the stage was set for another classic Ben Roethlisberger comeback.
Juju Smith-Schuster took a Big Ben pass 69-yards to setup the Steelers with first and goal inside the Patriots 10-yard line. On the next play, TE Jesse James caught a pass over the middle and reach for the goal line in what should’ve been the game winning touchdown.
But then the NFL’s terrible catch rule ruined it and on two plays later Big Ben was picked off in the end zone and clinching the game and quiet possibly home-field for the New England Patriots.
The reversed call and the interception was heartbreaking for Steelers’ fans and it was a perfect opportunity to set the moment to the tune of the Titanic theme song:
