One of the most clutch plays of last night's game came straight from Ben Roethlisberger.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback threw a 15-yard strike to Antonio Brown, that began with Big Ben faking a spike with under 50 seconds remaining. The score gave the Steelers a one-point lead in final minute. Unfortunately the Dallas Cowboys marched down the field and wound up scoring in the dying seconds to take the win by a score of 35-30.

Nevertheless, that trick-play call did not come from offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who Big Ben decided to ignore on the play.

"You take the lead, it feels pretty good, (but) guess we left them too much time," Roethlisberger said. "I kinda called it, (Brown) saw me call it, Todd (Haley) was in my head yelling 'Don't waste the down,' but I knew what I was going, so glad it worked."

Steelers' fans have been questioning the play calling all season long, and now they find out that the most creative play from last night's devastating loss was not from the sideline.

Heads might start rolling in Pittsburgh.
