It would take until late in the third quarter before we would see the first touchdown in the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. Saturday's Wild Card matchup was not expected to be such a defensive battle, but when the touchdown was scored, the Steelers were the only team on the board with only three field goals, going 9-0.
Martavis Bryant wanted to put his mark on the game with not only the first touchdown of the night, but to do so in acrobatic fashion. Catching the ball in the corner of the endzone, the ball was thrown in the only spot that Bryant could get it, but the rain made it a little difficult to make the grab cleanly. Bouncing around in his hands, Bryant would pin it to his leg, forcing himself to do a front flip while still getting both feet in-bounds along the way. The perfect mix of luck and skill.
Check it out for yourself.
How did he do that?!?! #Steelers https://t.co/mOqfuRNPzy— BTSC Steelers (@btsteelcurtain) January 10, 2016
The play would be reviewed automatically as all touchdowns are, with the referees agreeing that it was a catch and a touchdown.
What do you think? Was it a catch, and more importantly, did he have both feet in bounds after he maintained possession?
