The Steelers Went Full-Rutgers And Forgot To Field This Safety Punt

Illustration for article titled The Steelers Went Full-Rutgers And Forgot To Field This Safety Punt

Things were looking up for the Steelers about halfway through the third quarter. The Browns had committed a holding penalty in their own end zone, giving Pittsburgh two points off the safety which extended their lead to ten points. But the momentum came to a screeching halt for the black and gold when they decided to do their best Rutgers impression and fail to recover the ensuing safety punt.

The only explanation for this gaffe is that whatever is causing the dysfunction in Cleveland’s locker room has become contagious.
