The Houston Texans held a comfortable 13-3 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night with less than two minutes remaining in the first half.
Then, all hell broke loose.
After Ben Roethlisberger’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Martavis Bryant cut the deficit to 13-10, a botched kickoff return and an Arian Foster fumble gave the Steelers the ball on Houston’s three-yard line just 24 seconds later. And that’s when this happened.
In one of the craziest plays of the NFL season, wide receiver Antonio Brown took a pitch from Roethlisberger on an apparent reverse, spun around to his left and delivered a bullet to Lance Moore with J.J. Watt hot on his tail for the incredible touchdown.
Brown, who apparently is a lefty, had attempted four passes in his career prior to Monday night, but none was more impressive than this one, his first NFL touchdown pass.
The Steelers weren’t done, however, as defensive lineman Brett Keisel intercepted a deflected pass on the ensuing Texans’ drive and rumbled 16 yards to set up a two-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Le’Veon Bell.
When it was all said and done, the Steelers scored 21 points in one minute and 27 seconds to take a 24-13 lead into halftime.
