Steelers TE James 'sick' over overruled TD call

A dramatic ending to the Steelers-Patriots matchup turned controversial after officials overruled what appeared to be a go-ahead touchdown catch by the Steelers tight end Jesse James -- a decision derided by James and several of his teammates.

Ben Roethlisberger said he got word to run the goal-line play on third down instead of clock, via OC Todd Haley but "coming from the head guy." Then added, "Maybe that's on me, maybe I should have clocked it. I don't' know. We're not going to look back and second guess anything or anybody. We lost the game and I threw a pick at the end of the game to lose it."

NFL SVP/officiating Al Riveron explained his reversal of the Steelers' apparent winning touchdown Sunday night in a video released on Twitter. The key part: "[Steelers TE Jesse James] loses control of the football, and the ball touches the ground prior to him regaining control. Therefore, the ruling on the field of a touchdown was changed to an incomplete pass."

Tom Brady went 300 passing attempts and 12 years without being intercepted by the Steelers...until Vince Williams picked him off in the open field in the third quarter. Brady's first interception against Pittsburgh since 2005.

Mike Tomlin has to be thrilled with his Steelers' resolve after Antonio Brown left the game. The offense responded with an efficient 15-play, 89-yard drive spanning 8:39. This was the gameplan the Steelers wanted to employ against New England last season -- keep the ball away from Tom Brady, whose Patriots offense held the ball for 10:07 in the first half.
