The Dolphins appealed to the league to have the midweek statistical reversal reversed, believing an incompletion was the correct ruling.
Either way, the play sealed the Steelers' victory. They then ran out the clock with three kneel-downs and won 23-22 Sunday.
The more significant dispute involved an erroneous touchdown call when Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fumbled the football as he crossed the goal line. A replay review determined the TD was instead a fumble, but because the video didn't provide clear evidence as to which team recovered, the Steelers kept the ball and kicked the winning field goal on the next play.
