What all this talk of Steelers getting the first down?

These websites have headlined that the Steelers got a first yard on a 9 yard play. I don't understand why they are making such a big deal over it, but yet there is no mention of the pass interference of Sanders that potentially could've won us the game.

This is what I get for getting into it with NFL's PR Guy on Twitter.

the refs miss holding and pass interferance calls in every game but giving a runner a 1st down when he only ran 9 yards on 1st and 10 is a little different. if they did that to the jets we would be hearing about it for the next 5 years on this board. with that said, that extra yard gave Mendy 100 yards so im glad

Yeah they got away with a couple of very favorable spots in the game. In the end, the crappy officiating all evens out at some point. The refs giveth and the refs taketh away.
