Antonio Brown tweets 'Antonio Brown curse' eliminated Patriots, others from playoffs

Antonio Brown tweets 'Antonio Brown curse' eliminated Patriots, others from playoffs

Antonio Brown just won't stop tweeting about the New England Patriots. He went after the Patriots in several social media posts after their loss to the Tennessee Titans saying that the Patriots should have kept him and that he'd only play with Tom Brady in 2020.

On Sunday afternoon, Brown continued to take digs at the Patriots, among others.

Brown took to Twitter after the New Orleans Saints lost to the Minnesota Vikings. His tweet claimed that the "Antonio Brown curse" knocked out the Saints, Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Oakland Raiders from the postseason in the past week.

For those keeping track, Brown is referencing these five teams as they all were tied to him at different points this offseason. The Steelers traded him, the Bills were going to trade for him but the deal fell apart, the Raiders traded for him and cut him, the Patriots signed him and cut him, and the Saints worked him out near the end of the regular season.

But Brown's presence with these teams wouldn't have had any impact on them winning or losing in the postseason. Brown would likely be suspended indefinitely if he was on any roster because of the sexual assault allegations he is facing, which surfaced shortly after he joined the Patriots.

So, the idea that these teams parting with Brown played a role in their early exits from the postseason race is laughable, as he wouldn't likely have an on-field impact with any team.

And generally speaking, being a part of a curse isn't a good thing, so why is Brown bragging about this? If he comes with a curse attached, it will be even harder for him to find a home in the NFL than it already is.

NFL Twitter lost its mind reacting to Myles Garrett hitting Mason Rudolph with helmet

NFL Twitter lost its mind reacting to Myles Garrett hitting Mason Rudolph with helmet

Myles Garrett totally embarrassed himself, the Cleveland Browns and the NFL on Thursday night by ripping off Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and hitting him on the head with it in the final 10 seconds of the fourth quarter.

It was one of the craziest scenes in league history, and it sparked a full brawl between the two AFC North rivals.

Check out the incident in the video below:

Garrett no doubt will be suspended. The only question is how many games he'll get. Many players and media members immediately called for the Browns defensive end to not play again in the 2019 season, while others went a step further and suggested legal charges should be pursued.

The Steelers quickly tried to defend their quarterback as the fight unfolded, and Pittsburgh offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey actually tried to kick Garrett as he was down on the ground. It's possible Pouncey could be suspended for his actions as well.

Here's some of the best Twitter reaction to the crazy Garrett-Rudolph incident:

Dolphins, Steelers decline to be mic'd up on ESPN after Sam Darnold incident

Dolphins, Steelers decline to be mic'd up on ESPN after Sam Darnold incident

Adam Gase and the Jets weren't pleased by ESPN airing Sam Darnold's "seeing ghost" remark vs. the Patriots in Week 7, and it looks like the incident has had a ripple effect on the rest of the league.

Both the Steelers and Dolphins declined to be "mic'd up" on ESPN's "Monday Night Football," according to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal.

It doesn't come as much of a surprise that teams have become more cautious about wearing microphones following the Darnold incident. The Jets quarterback has been trolled by opposing players and even mascots since admitting to "seeing ghosts" vs. the "Boogymen" Pats defense.

Pittsburgh and Miami clearly want nothing to do with the risk of being exposed like that on national television, and we should expect more teams to follow suit. For ESPN, that's a tough break as the "mic'd up" segment is an integral part of their "Monday Night Football" broadcast.
