The Pittsburgh Steelers almost beat the Miami Dolphins on a wild play at the end of the game. Nearly 80-yards away from the end zone with just one second on the clock and trailing by six points, they needed a miracle.

They called up a short pass, but when they couldn’t break it they turned to laterals. The ball worked its way across the field and ended up in the hands of wide receiver Antonio Brown who took it to the house for a touchdown, except that it wasn’t a touchdown.

Brown was ruled out-of-bounds and the Dolphins won the game.

“I thought I had it clean,” said Brown, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I thought I separated really well getting to the sidelines, but it didn’t seem quite enough.”

He wasn’t the only one who thought he was in.

“I thought he was in. I celebrated,” safety Ryan Clark said.

Coach Mike Tomlin said: “I thought he was in.”

“I thought it was a touchdown,” Le’Veon Bell echoed.

“I thought we scored,” Ben Roethlisberger added.
