But they shouldn't have had the chance.
How can the refs miss something so basic. The Steelers should have been attempting a 60 yard FG (which means, instead, a punt) instead of getting the extra three.NFL rules wrote:If any player fumbles after the two-minute warning in a half, only the fumbling player is permitted to recover and/or advance the ball. If recovered by any other offensive player, the ball is dead at the spot of the fumble unless it is recovered behind the spot of the fumble.
It always happens to benefit their favorite teams too. Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, Seahawks.
