QB steals the spotlight from Steelers with a little 'mining'

Cornerback William Gay returned a fumble for a score Sunday, spurring Pittsburgh on to win the AFC championship with a 24-19 decision over the New York Jets.

The miscue by Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was recovered by Gay, who ran it back 19 yards for a touchdown less than 2 minutes before halftime. The scoreboard showed a 24-0 lead for the Steelers, which the team held onto in the second half, although the Jets did rack up 19 points. 

The Steelers will now face the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6 in Arlington, Texas.

But the Steelers' win wasn't the biggest headline grabber of the night. Sanchez stole the spotlight when he was filmed picking his nose and wiping what he "mined" onto teammate Mark Brunell's jacket. 

It's probably not the most disgusting thing ever done on an NFL sideline, but it has got to rank pretty high up there. 

What's sad is that this was probably the high point of Sanchez's night.

Here's the video. Please…to enjoy.
