Many Pittsburgh Steelers fans were despondent when they found out receiver Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds inside the 15-yard line on the final play of the game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Brown looked to have scored the game-winning touchdown on a miraculous final play that would have sent Steelers Nation into an absolute frenzy. It wasn't meant to be, though, and one person has a legitimate reason to be disappointed after the result cost him nearly $100,000.  

Here's a snapshot of the play:

If Pittsburgh had won, the unnamed fan would not have had to worry about the Dallas Cowboys-Chicago Bears game on Monday Night Football. The fan made—at least—two $5 bets, only changing his pick for Monday night's game:

Brown's left foot cost this fan nearly $100,000. That's tough to swallow.

Thanks to Barstool Sports Chicago for the story.
