WATCH: Steelers called for absolutely insane false start on a punt

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ special teams unit has had more downs than ups this season, but this time, they may have been in the right. On fourth-and-3, the Steelers were set to punt, when it seemed that Patriots LB Jahlani Tavai jumped offsides — a five yard penalty that would have secured this team the first down.

Flags were thrown.

However, the flag was on Pittsburgh, with long snapper Christian Kuntz called on a false start.

The false start call came on the movement of Kuntz’s head, though it seems like a fairly standard head movement.

Was this a false start?
