Who told Mike Tomlin this was a good idea.
Rob Gronkowski caught a pass, and while he was on the ground Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Mike Mitchell knocked the ball out of his hand. The Steelers head coach challenged the play.
Steelers fans in the stadium booed the challenge, via Penn Live’s Jacob Klinger. All across Twitter people talked about the awful decision.
Tomlin challenges the call, for some reason. No way that's a fumble on Gronk

Maybe the worst challenge ever. But then again, this is the NFL and no one really knows what a catch is.

That's an interesting challenge.

The New England Patriots went up early on the Steelers 14-0. They just scored to bring the score within one possession. Pittsburgh is without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger today, but looking to make up for last week’s loss to the Miami Dolphins.
