Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin understands his team is in a battle for the playoffs & will do anything to get them there; even reroute a receiver on camera.
Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones was on the verge of scoring a touchdown running the sideline when Tomlin “accidentally” stepped onto the field which forced Jones to change paths which caused him to get tackled, stopping to score.
It stopped the score but didn’t stop the Steelers from losing against the Ravens, 20 to 22.
The incident has not been overlooked. The NFL is investigating this stunt and NFL Insider Adam Schefter stated today that the punishment can be a six-figure fine plus a loss of a draft pick for the team. The league will confirm this within this week.
