The Steelers were the AFC Champs in 2010, having a solid 12-4 campaign that saw them beat the Ravens and Jets enroute to the Super Bowl where they lost a tough game to the Green Bay Packers 31-25 in front of over 103,000 in Cowboys Stadium.
There was plenty of memorable moments in that season, but one that clearly comes to mind was from a game played in South Florida on October 24th, as the Steelers topped the Dolphins 23-22.
What many will recall was the bizarre ruling near the end of the game by head official Gene Steratore. If you don’t recall – here’s part of our game story from Steelers Gab that afternoon.
The Steelers survived an officiating goof on Sunday afternoon against the Dolphins, and because of it the team is now 5-1 after a 23-22 win over the Dolphins.
The mistake happened on the Steelers last game-winning drive, as Ben Roethlisberger fumbled at the half yard line, and it seemed the Fins recovered it in the end zone for what could have been the death blow for the club.
After a long delay referee Gene Steratore announced that Roethlisberger fumbled before scoring. But Steratore said his crew had no clear evidence as to which team recovered the ball, and the Steelers were awarded possession at the half-yard line.
