Mike Mitchell currently is experiencing a devastating case of foot-in-mouth.
The Pittsburgh Steelers safety made headlines last week when he was quoted in a Sports Illustrated article as saying his team would beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Mitchell effectively made a double-guarantee, as he acted like a Steelers win in the AFC Divisional Round was a foregone conclusion.
But Mitchell and his teammates probably should’ve focused on the task at hand, as they suffered a shocking 45-42 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
After the game, the Jags reminded the world of Mitchell’s comments by quote tweeting a “SportsCenter” tweet.
Check out this absolutely savage troll:
With the win, Jacksonville advanced to next Sunday’s AFC title game, where they’ll battle the Patriots for the right to represent the conference in Super Bowl LII.
