Getty A fight broke out after the final play of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.
The Pittsburgh Steelers prevailed in Week 10 with a 23:19 win against the Green Bay Packers. But the Steelers couldn’t go to the locker room after the win without a postgame scrum.
The Packers trailed by four points with three seconds left in regulation and the ball at the Pittsburgh 18-yard line. The Steelers defense needed one final stop to secure the victory.
After the Steelers received this stop, the officials temporarily lost control of the two teams.
Safety Damontae Kazee intercepted quarterback Jordan Love’s pass at the 2-yard line, sealing the Steelers’ victory. But instead of sliding downfield, Kazee ran up the field for an interception return.
As time expired, Kazee ran out of bounds for a 30-yard return. But a few steps down the sideline, Packers right tackle Zach Tom delivered a late hit on Kazee.
That led to a scrum on the Pittsburgh sideline. Video of the return, late goal and fight went viral on X (formerly Twitter) in the hours after the game.
“Big fight at the end of the Steelers-Packers game,” wrote JPAFootball.
After the situation calmed down and there were handshakes, the officials assessed an unnecessary roughness penalty against the Packers.
