Referee Walt Coleman's explanation of the Steelers' game-winning touchdown :
"You have to have two feet down to complete the catch. [Holmes] had two feet down and completed the catch with control of the ball breaking the plane of the goal line.
" ... When he gained control of the ball, the ball was breaking the plane, and then he fell into the field of play. But to have a touchdown, all you have to have is a catch, which is the two feet down, possession and control of the ball breaking the plane.
Coleman on why the original play was ruled to not be a touchdow n:
"[Head linesman Paul Weidner] felt like when the receiver gained possession of the ball, the ball was not breaking the plane of the goal line."
