The Immaculate Reception
We all know about Franco Harris’s iconic game-winning touchdown against the Raiders in the AFC Divisional Round. This remains one of the most polarizing plays in NFL history because there’s a strong argument that it was against the rules. However, this was before the dawn of video replays and advanced technology.
It appeared that the ball touched the ground before Harris snatched it and ran it in for a brilliant score. But the officials didn’t spot this moment as it happened in real-time. Harris played until the whistle and secured the victory for the Steelers. In the end, that’s what everybody remembers (via History.com).
