The Pittsburgh Steelers had a late comeback attempt fall through the hands of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on a two-point conversion attempt, but they had one last chance to upend the division rival Baltimore Ravens in the Thanksgiving Day nightcap on an onside kick attempt.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, they attempted to get too cute during the onside kick attempt and the kick was an absolute disaster.

Kicker Shaun Suisham initially approached the ball before changing his direction to fool defenders. He then changed directions again before booting the ball with his left foot and not even coming close to hitting the required ten-yard distance.

It was a complete and utter failure, as Jerricho Cotchery hauled in the ball and the Steelers chances at completing the comeback were over.
