Chase Claypool: “The ball got knocked out of my hands”

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Pittsburgh’s 17-game season may have come to an end in the 14 seconds that elapsed between the fourth-down catch made by Steelers receiver Chase Claypool and the next snap.

After the 36-28 loss that ended in part because the Steelers ran out of time to finish a 96-yard drive that, with a two-point conversion, would have tied the game, Claypool gave his version of the fateful moments that robbed the Steelers of one or two shots more at the end zone. “Did my little first-down point. Went to hand the ball to the ref. He just got there…. The ball got knocked out of my hands. That’s what cost us time. But I definitely do have to be better.”

The ball “Got knocked out” of Claypool’s hands by offensive lineman Trai Turner, because Claypool was oblivious to the fact that they needed to move with a sense of urgency. After tight end Pat Freiermuth retrieved the ball and Claypool nearly lined up offside at the next snap, Claypool seemed to be upset.
