The Pittsburgh Steelers experienced a momentum swing that reminds us why we love football so much and cannot take out eyes off the game each Sunday. After fumbling the kickoff at their own goal line, stopping the Packers in three straight plays and then blocking the field goal, the Steelers were called for a questionable illegal batting penalty that gave Green Bay the ball back and allowed them to score.
But not only did the Steelers bounce back with a touchdown on the next drive, they followed that up by intercepting Matt Flynn and taking it back to the house for a score. Cortez Allen was in the right place at the right time after Matt Flynn bumped into his own player and tossed the ball right to the Steelers defensive back.
Allen had nothing but white grass in front of him and skated right through the snow and into the endzone to give Pittsburgh a 10 point lead. How long the lead lasts isn’t known given the nature of the game so far, but the Steelers saw the football gods reward their resilience and the Packers season may have come down to their equivalent of the ‘Butt Fumble’.
