For the first 59 minutes and 59 seconds of Thursday Night Football, the initial total of 40.5 appeared to be all but guaranteed to go under.

Then on the final play of the game, the winning bet vanished into thin air.

Mitchell Trubisky completed an 8-yard pass to Diontae Johnson, who lateraled it to Chase Claypool and then got it into the hands of Najee Harris. Harris lost possession of the ball at Pittsburgh's 2-yard line, leading to a touchdown with no time left on the clock by Denzel Ward and the Browns' defense.

While the closing line for tonight's matchup ended up at 38, the game's initial opening number for the over/under was at 40.5, setting up for one of the worst bad beats we may see this entire NFL season.
