Inmate sues NFL over missed call that cost Steelers playoff berth


A prison inmate in Mercer County is suing the NFL because the Steelers didn’t make the playoffs.

According to Fox Sports, Daniel Spuck is suing the league over the play in which Kansas City missed a potentially game-winning field goal. (Click here to see the entire lawsuit.)

The referees didn’t call an illegal formation penalty against San Diego that would have given the Chiefs’ kicker another chance at the field goal.

Had the Chiefs won the game, the Steelers would have been the sixth-seed in the AFC.

Spuck is requesting the playoffs be postponed so Kansas City can try the kick again.
