After the Steelers began the sport with a pick-six simply 9 seconds into the primary quarter, their kick returner, Gunner Olszewsky made a mind-boggling mistake on a kickoff after a Cleveland subject purpose.
Whereas making an attempt to catch the ball near the sidelines, Olszewsky tried to inexplicably toe-tap on the sideline as an alternative of permitting the ball to exit of bounds. If Olszewsky would have chosen to let the ball exit of play, the Steelers would have been awarded the ball on the 40-yard-line.
As a substitute, his gaffe backed Pittsburgh up at their very own 9-yard-line.
