Antonio Brown steps out of bounds to erase miracle touchdown on last play
Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds on his way to the end zone on the final play of the Pittsburgh Steelers-Miami Dolphins game, wiping out a miracle touchdown that would have tied the game.
The Steelers were down 34-28 to the Dolphins and tried one of those plays at the end of the game where they would lateral and run up field like a rugby play. The ball eventually ended up in the hands of Brown, who went forward and broke free. However, he was pinned against the sideline as he was breaking for paydirt, and he ended up stepping out towards the end of his run.
Though it looked like the Steelers may have had an illegal forward pass on the play, the referees didn’t penalize them for it, meaning if Brown hadn’t stepped out, the touchdown might have stood.
Here’s a look at the play:
