The Immaculate Reception is one of the greatest football plays of all time. Franco Harris's catch in the dwindling seconds of the game allowed the Pittsburgh Steelers to beat the Oakland Raiders in this 1972 playoff matchup.

This video shows the play first in slightly reduced speed, then in super slow motion, then from different camera angles.

The call was controversial because it wasn't clear whom the ball made contact with. Under NFL rules at the time, if the ball made contact with an offensive player first, and then was caught by another offensive player without any intervening contact by a defensive player, the catch was deemed illegal. (This rule was later rescinded in 1978.)

The rule stated in pertinent part that once an offensive player touches a pass, he is the only offensive player eligible to catch the pass. "However, if a [defensive] player touches [the] pass first, or simultaneously with or subsequent to its having been touched by only one [offensive] player, then all [offensive] players become and remain eligible" to catch the pass. Official Rules for Professional Football 1971, Rule 7, Section 5, Article 2, Item 1, pp. 44-45.

So, the question here is whether Raiders defensive back Jack Tatum ever made contact with the ball. What do you think?

Another source of controversy is whether the ball touched the ground before Harris caught it. Again, what do you think?

The song is a loop of an excerpt of "What's Up, Fatlip?" by Fatlip.

Please note that I did not put an advertisement on this Immaculate Reception video. The ad was placed on the video by the NFL and YouTube.
