You can see that Percy's attention was on preventing the Steeler D-Backs from intercepting the pass instead of catching the ball. The ball hits his helmet just above the face mask. If he looks up he might have made the catch. Just think, Percy's only catch as a Cowboys was in that same SB and it went for a touchdown. How awsome it would have been if Howard could have caught that second touchdown.
Percy mistimed his leap by a split second.
It was disappointing, but taking the Steelers to the very last play of the game is nothing to be ashamed of.
