Controversial call helps Steelers outlast Miami Dolphins

After a controversial fumble at the goal line gave the Steelers the ball for an extra down, Jeff Reed kicked a 19-yard field goal with 2:26 remaining in the fourth quarter to lift Pittsburgh over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium.

Pittsburgh's Jeff Reed kicked a 19-yard field goal with 2:19 remaining to hand the Dolphins a 23-22 loss at Sun Life Stadium Sunday afternoon, dropping the Dolphins to 0-3 at home and 3-3 overall this season.

The Dolphins took a 22-20 lead in a tense game, dominated at times by the two defenses with the occasional explosive plays from each offense with a 40-yard Dan Carpenter field goal with 5:17 left. But a long kickoff return by Emmanuel Sanders set the Steelers up at the Dolphins' 48 and set the stage for an ending that'll be long reviewed and much argued about.

On third and goal from the Dolphins 2, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger finished off a quarterback draw by layout diving his 6-5 body toward the goal line. Dolphins safety Chris Clemons cracked Roethlisberger from the side, causing a fumble that wobbled into the end zone and was quickly submerged in a dog pile.

Officials initially ruled a touchdown, which the Dolphins challenged. After a lengthy review involving replays from at least three angles, it was decided Roethlisberger fumbled before he crossed the goal line. But, as no determination had been made on the field as to who recovered the ball -- and replay didn't give a clear determination, either, in the referee's judgment -- the Steelers were given the ball inside the 1, fourth and goal.

Reed kicked the chip shot to put the Steelers ahead. The Dolphins turned the ball over on downs without a first down on their final possession.
What the final controversy might overshadow is that the Dolphins blew scoring chances after Reshad Jones recovered the fumbled opening kickoff at the Pittsburgh 22 and Koa Misi recovered a Roethlisberger fumble at the Pittsburgh 13 on the next possession. The Dolphins didn't get a first down and had to settle for two field goals and a 6-0 lead.
