The Pittsburgh Steelers took the lead on the Dallas Cowboys in stunning fashion.

Driving downfield with under a minute remaining, the Steelers trailed 29-24. After a pass to tight end Jesse James put the ball on the Dallas 15, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger came to the line as if he was going to spike the ball.

Instead, he pulled his best Dan Marino impression. Big Ben faked the spike, and hit an open Antonio Brown for six points and the lead.

Of course, this didn't matter because Dallas came down and scored quickly to win the game. Too bad, because this play is definitely one worth talking about.
