Pittsburgh Nearly Beat Miami with the Most Incredible Multi-Lateral Play in NFL History

Shayn Roby’s Take: This play might have replaced the Music City Miracle as the greatest lateral play in professional football history had Antonio Brown not stepped out of bounds at the fifteen yard line of the Miami Dolphins.

The Big Lead

Steelers final play against Dolphins

Pittsburgh needed a touchdown on the final play of the game, so they played the lateral game. And guess what? They appeared to score a touchdown! But here’s the bad news – Antonio Brown, who appeared to score the incredible game-winning TD, stepped out of bounds around the 15-yard line. Amazingly, he had gotten by everyone on confused Miami, and should have been able to stay inbounds for the game-winning TD. It’s a brutal ending for Pittsburgh, who needed this win to keep pace in the race for the final Wild Card spot in the AFC.

I counted five laterals, and they all looked clean – except maybe Roethlisberger’s. That one was close, but I never saw an isolated replay of it because the play didn’t count.
