Joey Porter hasn't played in an NFL game in almost five years, but last night his unnecessary presence on the field led to an additional 15-yard penalty to give the Steelers an extremely makeable field goal (which they drilled) to beat a Bengals team that completely imploded. Afterward a Steelers beat writer (who may've been making a joke?) claimed that the Pittsburgh assistant was gifted the game ball:
