Midway through the fourth, with the Steelers up a score and on the edge of field goal range, Ben Roethlisberger was sacked. He was banged up, and slow getting back to the huddle, and the Steelers found themselves with a choice—burn a timeout, or take a delay of game penalty. WR Emmanuel Sanders took a third path: He crumpled to the ground like he had been shot.
Rolling around in pain, then limping off the field, it appeared that Sanders had suffered a cramp. You can't prove or disprove a cramp just by looking at someone—but Sanders didn't have a cramp. He was merely the latest to carry on with one of football's oldest traditions: the fake injury.
