LOOK: This crazy DK Metcalf fumble and Geno Smith spike somehow sent Seahawks to overtime vs. Steelers

The Seahawks and Steelers went to overtime on “Sunday Night Football” prior to Pittsburgh took out a 23-20 success, however the method they arrived was anything however traditional. With Geno Smith substituting the hurt Russell Wilson, Seattle had little difficulty moving the ball on its last drive of policy. Smith went 5-for-5 to press the Seahawks all the method from their own 25-yard line to the Steelers’ 25 in a matter of 90 seconds. But that’s not representing the last play prior to Jason Myers’ 43-yard game-tying basket.

With simply 18 seconds on the clock, Smith fired a first-down pass to DK Metcalf, who inexplicably stopped briefly and after that powered forward to acquire more lawns instead of heading out of bounds to stop the clock. In the procedure, he lost the football, practically distributing the whole video game. Fortunately, fellow wideout Freddie Swain remained in the location and dived atop the ball, recuperating it with 11 seconds to go. With the clock still running and Seattle out of timeouts, nevertheless, Swain needed to run back to the line (with prompting from a thrilled Russell Wilson, who quickly stepped onto the field), and Smith surged it with actually 1 2nd on the clock.

Officials rapidly chose to examine the previous play, nevertheless, obviously to figure out if Metcalf had in fact had the ball prior to fumbling it. And they obviously blew the whistle to examine the have fun with 3 seconds on the clock. After the evaluation was over and maintained Metcalf’s apparent catch, Seattle got 3 seconds instead of 1 to surge the ball and established Myers’ basket. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was naturally irritated over the call, however the Seahawks benefited from it, eliminating the clock again and after that sending out Myers onto the field to press the video game into overtime.

Oh, and after that Wilson — who is presently on hurt reserve, not a member of the group’s active lineup — in some way got to represent Seattle for the OT coin toss, in case you believed things got more sensible from there.
