The Pittsburgh Steelers safety jumped the route on Joe Burrow's first pass attempt of the season, intercepting a ball intended for Tyler Boyd. He ran it back 31 yards for the first Steelers touchdown of the season and an early 7-0 lead over the Cincinnati Bengals in the first quarter.

Bengals Take Steelers To Wire In 23-20 Loss On Last Play Of Overtime

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow shook off a career-high four interceptions and appeared to lead the Bengals to an improbable victory twice, once in regulation and once in overtime, but two missed kicks cost them in a heartbreaking 23-20 Opening Day loss to the Steelers before the drained 65,841 at Paycor Stadium.

With wide receiver Tee Higgins (concussion) out in the second half and wide receiver Tyler Boyd and running back Joe Mixon limping off the field on the first series of overtime (they would come back), Burrow hit tight end Hayden Hurst for a 20-yard gain that put the Bengals on the Steelers 13.

On third-and-eight Bengals head coach Zac Taylor opted to go for Evan McPherson's 29-yard field goal to win it even though he didn't have long snapper Clark Harris (bicep) and he went to backup tight end Mitchell Wilcox . After the new combo saw the winning extra point blocked at the end of regulation, Taylor went for it on third down in case there was a bad snap, giving them another shot on fourth down.

But this snap was high and McPherson yanked it left. When the Steelers' Chris Boswell followed it up by clanking a 55-yarder off the left upright, Burrow (33 of 53 for 338 yards) unbelievably had another chance.
