2. Duron Harmon’s end zone interception seals the win vs. Pittsburgh
They call him “The Closer” for a reason.
Up three points with nine seconds to go and their backs against the goal line, the Patriots’ defense needed to make a stop.
Ben Roethlisberger stepped back, faked a spike, and drilled a pass to the end zone.
“And it’s intercepted!”
Eric Rowe deflected the pass and Duron Harmon came down with it. The ball hawk safety whose fourth-quarter interceptions have sealed plenty of Patriots wins halted Pittsburgh’s potential game-winning drive just short of the end zone.
A loss to the Steelers would’ve been New England’s second in two weeks. Instead, a wild ending to a 27-24 win found them 11-3 atop the AFC.
