It looked like a Madden glitch. Did Josiah Deguara's controller batteries die when the Green Bay Packers had their extra point blocked against the Pittsburgh Steelers?
Moments after Jordan Love made arguably his best throw of the season, Deguara made perhaps the worst play of the entire year.
Love had just thrown a picture-perfect 35-yard touchdown pass to Jayden Reed. An extra point would've made it a three-point game late in the second quarter. But rookie Anders Carlson had his kick blocked by no fault of his own.
The blame falls on tight end Deguara.
Josiah Deguara forgot to block in Packers loss to Steelers
Deguara has missed several blocks this season, but it's not usually down to a lack of effort. He seemingly didn't see Steelers cornerback Patrick Peterson running right at him until it was too late. Deguara left Peterson unblocked to make the play.
It sounds bad. It's even worse when you see the play. Take a look for yourself.
Deguara isn't having a great season. The Packers hoped he would step up in the absence of Marcedes Lewis, but he hasn't offered enough as a blocker. Deguara doesn't catch many passes, either, having made eight catches for 65 yards this season.
He plays a significant number of special teams snaps, but plays like this don't exactly show why.
And it was a costly moment in the game. The Packers trailed by four points late in the fourth quarter, including on their final drive, when they had to score a touchdown with less than a minute remaining and no timeouts. A three-point game would've changed everything.
Green Bay quickly got into field-goal range, but three points wasn't enough. It would've been a different scenario had the Packers made the extra-point try.
Deguara's mistake proved costly, and it may go down as one of the worst plays of the season.
