VIDEO: Antonio Brown, Steelers Fall Just Inches Short on Miracle Touchdown Attempt

Steelers WR Antonio Brown raced down the sideline with just one defender to beat and no time remaining on a snow-filled Heinz Field—looking to score the potential game-winning touchdown.

There was only one problem: His left foot stepped out of bounds at the 15-yard line, just before he pranced into the end zone for what looked like a dramatic walk-off victory.


With the Steelers faced with a 4th-and-4 situation on their own 26-yard line, with just two seconds remaining, most Pittsburgh fans had already begun making their way to the exits. But the team never gave up. The ball was snapped, and QB Ben Roethlisberger completed a 20-yard pass to WR Emmanuel Sanders near the right hash. Sanders then lateraled the football, and, after a few more tosses, the ball made its way back across the field to Roethlisberger, who dived forward and quickly flipped it to Brown in space just before being dragged down by rookie DE Dion Jordan.

Brown used his burner speed and took off down the left sideline, first splitting two defenders then making another miss on a tackle attempt. Even in the snow, he had no problem leaving Dolphins defenders in his dust.

Unfortunately, his left foot caught a bit of the sideline on his way to the end zone, and the Dolphins held on to win.

It was one heck of an effort, though, and the Steelers almost pulled off the craziest play since the Titans’ Music City Miracle over 13 years ago.
