There was nothing normal about the Los Angeles Chargers victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. The end was no exception.

The Chargers appeared ready to win the game as time expired. But kicker Michael Badgley missed a 39-yard field goal, apparently sending the game to overtime. Fortunately for Los Angeles, Joe Haden jumped offsides.

Badgley lined up for a second attempt, which was blocked by Artie Burns. Only, the Steelers were hit with another offsides penalty, giving the Chargers a third attempt.

The third time was the charm for Badgley. He knocked the 29-yard attempt through.

Amazingly, Burns jumped offsides again, though this was obviously declined. Twitter went nuts over the crazy finish.

We won’t soon see another ending like this.
