So, after the Buffalo Bills lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime, wide receiver Steve Johnson tweeted that he blamed God for the game-winning dropped pass; or, so we thought. In Sundayâ€™s game, Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a perfect touchdown passl to wide receiver Steve Johnson. Unfortunately, Johnson forgot to catch it. The Steelers, then, marched down the field to score the game-winning field goal. Shortly after the game, Steve Johnson tweeted who he thought was to blame, â€œI PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THOâ€¦â€
Many people insinuated that this tweet was putting blame on God for the dropped pass and rightly so. Who else does one â€œpraise 24/7â€ and receive life lessons from? However, the wide receiver did not see it that way. Monday night, Steve Johnson, who dropped the game-winning pass in overtime, tweeted,â€ And No I Did Not Blame God People! Seriously??!? CMon! I Simply Cried Out And Asked Why? Jus Like yal did wen sumthin went wrong n ur life!â€
Itâ€™s clear that Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson couldâ€™ve avoided all this heat by just catching the game-winning touchdown pass. In his defense, he did leave the original â€œambiguousâ€ tweet up , not backing down from what he â€œwroteâ€. He did, though, have to â€œclarifyâ€ his original sentiment behind it. Due to his unorthodox views on how to perceive a tweet that infers to blame God for dropping a game-winning pass, itâ€™s safe to say that any future comments, tweets, quotes, that Mr. Johnson makes must be taken lightly, until further explanation.
Here's the play in question:
