The Pittsburgh Steelers made an incredible comeback to take a late lead over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football, but the Chargers ultimately came away with a 41-37 victory.

First, we’ll show what happened in the fourth quarter, before showing how the NFL world reacted to the craziness.

Pittsburgh trailed 27-10 entering the fourth quarter, and it was a 27-13 game when they blocked a punt and got the ball at the Los Angeles three-yard line with 12:33 remaining.

After the Chargers were called for pass interference on fourth-and-goal, Najee Harris ran for a one-yard touchdown to make it a 27-20 game (after the Chris Boswell extra point).

It appeared that the Chargers had finally put the game away when running back Austin Ekeler scored his fourth touchdown of the night with 8:48 remaining.

But Ben Roethlisberger connected with Eric Ebron for a Steelers touchdown on the ensuing drive, making it a 34-27 game with 4:49 remaining.

And then the Steelers got the ball back on a Cam Sutton interception, after Cam Heyward tipped the Justin Herbert pass.

Well, the Steelers tied the game up 34-34 after Roethlisberger and Pat Freiermuth teamed up for a touchdown just two plays after the interception.

On the ensuing Los Angeles possession, Chargers head coach Brandon Staley chose to go for it on 4th-and-goal at their own 34-yard line, and Pittsburgh stuffed them with 3:48 remaining.

Four plays later, Boswell hit a 45-yard field goal to give the Steelers a stunning 37-34 lead with 3:29 remaining.

But that lead didn’t last long for Pittsburgh.

Herbert — who threw for 382 yards and even ran for 90 yards — connected with Mike Williams for a 53-yard Chargers touchdown with 2:09 remaining. And that would serve as the game-winner for Los Angeles.

This would’ve been another classic Chargers meltdown loss, but Herbert — a star second-year quarterback — and company found a way to get it done in the end.

Here’s how the NFL world reacted to this incredible Sunday Night Football game:
