On Sunday Night Football, the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Los Angeles Chargers in one of the crazier NFL games you will ever see.
After taking a 23-7 lead into the half, the Steelers had to feel pretty darn comfortable. After all, they had been 174-0-1 at home when having at least a 16-point lead at any point.
The Chargers overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Steelers 33-30. It's Pittsburgh's largest blown lead since 1981, and the team's largest blown lead at home in team history.
The Steelers were 174-0-1 at home with at least a 16-point lead.

But the second half was another story as the Chargers stormed back and ended up winning the game 33-30 as they kicked the game-winning field goal with no time left on the clock.
During the game, a couple of Steelers’ fans were caught on camera jawing at each other in the stands. That jawing did not last long as the fan in the hoodie absolutely destroys the fan wearing a Troy Polamalu with a vicious headbutt.
Check it out.
Hopefully, for the guy in the Polamalu jersey, the headbutt was enough to erase his memory about what ended up happening in the game.
