After their Sunday Night Football victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, the Pittsburgh Steelers had to make an emergency landing on their flight home.
Multiple media outlets in Pittsburgh have reported that the plane was forced to land due to oil pressure failure in an engine of the chartered Delta Airlines Airbus A330-900 they were taking home.
According to ESPN’s Steelers beat reporter Brooke Pryorthe team has been on the plane since 10:30 PM PT on Sunday (1:30 AM PT on Monday).
Their replacement plane did not begin taxiing for takeoff until around 10:30 a.m. CT (11:30 a.m. ET) and will not land in Pennsylvania until 1:30 p.m. ET.
Multiple players have tweeted throughout the ordeal, frustrated that they couldn’t leave the plane.
