PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh Steelers fan imprisoned for murder has sued the league and wants a federal judge to delay the remainder of the playoffs so the Steelers can have another chance to qualify for them.
The Steelers were knocked out of the playoffs when San Diego beat Kansas City 27-24 in overtime in their final regular season game. The game went into overtime when Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop missed a last-second field goal try that would have won the game. The NFL has since acknowledged San Diego should have been penalized, meaning Succop should have gotten another chance to make the kick.
Inmate Daniel Spuck wants the playoffs delayed until Succop can try the kick again - or until the Steelers play a neutral-site game against San Diego for a playoff spot.
The NFL hasn't commented.
