Trailing 22-14 late in the fourth quarter against the Ravens, Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was inches away from bagging a touchdown that could have helped turn the game around.


Despite landing over the line, this brutal helmet-to-helmet hit from Jimmy Smith meant the score didn't count, thanks to a new rule which states that a play is dead the moment a helmet comes off. Bell was taken off with a possible concussion but the Steelers got their touchdown two plays later. However they then missed the two point conversion and made a mess of claiming their onside kick as the Ravens won 22-20.
