Plays of the Year: AB's improbable TD catch hands Chiefs first loss of the season | Steel City Underground

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown

Steel City Underground presents "Plays of the Year" featuring the tops runs, catches, hits and everything else in-between for the Steelers 2017 season.

Many of us here at SCU said this many of times during the Steelers 2017 season: Antonio Brown makes the impossible look commonplace.

Once upon a time, the Kansas City Chiefs were the hottest team in the NFL. Starting the season off 5-0, the Steelers looked like a haphazard team who just lost to two "bad" teams in the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars.

In fact, they lost to the Jags at home: how were they going to overcome the Chiefs, on the road, in one of the toughest stadiums to play at in the entire league?

That was the question on everyone's mind as Pittsburgh jumped out to a 2-0 lead from a safety, then led at half 12-3.

Kansas City closed the gap to 12-10 before Brown struck. Needing a big play, AB made a superhuman feat look simple as the Steelers were staring down the barrel of a 3rd and 2, up only two points with about three and a half minutes in the game.

Ben Roethlisberger looks to his favorite receiver, who is obstructed by a KC defender, who incidentally also has the football bounce off of his helmet and into one (yes, only one) of Brown's hands before 84 secures the ball and takes it to the house for a 51-yard touchdown reception.

The score would prove to be the deciding factor in a 19-13 Steelers win which would hand the Chiefs their first loss of the 2017 season.
