The Pittsburgh Steelers had no chance when Presidential Trump waved a Terrible Towel in a rally earlier in the week, which clearly made the Steelers lose to the Miami Dolphins, 30-15 in Miami.
An explosive 60 yard reverse by Darrius Heyward-Bey in the first quarter and a two point conversion to Le’Veon Bell ahead 8-3 in the first quarter.
After a poor first quarter showing, the Dolphins swam back in the second quarter, leading 16-8 at half.
They opened the lead when some player Steelers fans do not care about scored from one yard out in the third quarter.
The Steelers showed life near the end of the game, bringing it within eight points after Cobi Hamilton’s first career touchdown reception.
An ensuing onside kick return was recovered by the Dolphins, shutting the door on a Steelers comeback.
That one running back, Jay Ajayi, a total jerk that just had to rub it in even more, scored a 62 yard touchdown run.
Heyward-Bey, Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Mitchell were off the field due to injuries during the first half, but all returned.
The Steelers were already hampered by injuries, Cameron Heyward and Markus Wheaton sat out the game.
Last week’s sensation, Sammie Coates, was clearly affected by a broken finger and recorded no catches.
Despite these legitimate reasons on how the Steelers lost, there is a clear reason for their abysmal performance.
During a rally in Ambridge this past Monday, Trump waved a Terrible Towel tainting any chances of victory against the Dolphins.
He mentioned golfing with Roethlisberger at the rally, which surely caused his two interception performance this afternoon, one of his worst in recent memory.
The Steelers return to action next Sunday at 4:25 PM against Trump ally Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
