Kevin Gorman's Take 5: Patriots steal one from Steelers

18 December, 2017, 03:11 | Author: Ellis Copeland
  • Jesse James had his touchdown catch overturned

Trailing by five points with under three minutes to play at Heinz Field, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led his team on a miraculous 77-yard drive that gave New England a three-point lead with 55 seconds left.

Brown crossed across the middle of the end zone as he suffered hits from both sides attempting to catch the touchdown, and his leg snapped into a defenders shin. He was able to put weight on the injured leg as he headed to the locker room for further evaluation.

Brown was trying to catch a touchdown pass in the second quarter against the New England Patriots, and his foot got stuck in the turf.

All this modern era of Pittsburgh Steelers football knows is heartbreak and misery at the hands of the New England Patriots. He had a huge interception in the third quarter on third-and-short, which changed the game as the Steelers scored on the following drive. Shortly after the injury the word was that he had a calf injury. He found pay dirt on the ground, ran for 117 yards and caught for 48 more as well to provide a spark when Antonio Brown went down early in the game.

We have seen many "is it a catch?" controversies through the years. And whether it was intended for James White or Gronkowski, it was picked off by Vince Williams, who returned it 13 yards to the Patriots' 22.

That set up Dion Lewis' 8-yard touchdown run, which was followed by a two-point conversion pass to - who else?

Before you could blink, JuJu Smith-Schuster answered with a 69-yard catch down the left sideline, and it looked like the Steelers would steal a victory.
