Twitter reacts to Raiders’ stunning win over the Steelers

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday did not go too swimmingly for Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Bay Area.

Taking on the two-win Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh found itself in a game throughout. For his part, Big Ben missed some time with a rib injury. But when he returned to the action, the Steelers couldn’t do enough to fend off the upset.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit backup tight end Derek Carrier on a six-yard touchdown on fourth down with just 21 seconds remaining to give Oakland a 24-21 lead.

Pittsburgh then seemed to put Chris Boswell in position for a game-winning field goal following this desperation play from JuJu Smith-Shuster and rookie James Washington.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, Boswell slipped on a 40-yard field goal attempt to send the Steelers to their third consecutive loss.

Needles to say, Twitter was full of reactions following this dramatic turn of events.
