Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Von Miller is reacting to a comments Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett made about Pittsburgh being an underdog.
Miller was livestreaming on Wednesday night when he came across a tweet from 93.7 The Fan’s Josh Rowntree that quoted Pickett saying “Everyone thinks we’re underdogs. But we don’t.”
“Who thinks your underdogs bud?” said Miller. “Nobody said, what? Stop it Kenny. Stop it Kenny! Don’t try to get crazy on us man, just come in and play the game.”
Not sure exactly what Miller is trying to do here. The Steelers are a 14-point underdog.
That 14-points is the biggest of the season for any game in the NFL and the biggest for the Steelers since 1969.
“Why is he looking at the spread, nobody looks at the spread of the game, like nobody’s looking at none of that, like we’re just getting ready to play the Steelers,” said Miller. “Don’t try to get fake mad at . . . don’t try to get crazy on us man, nobody thinks you’re underdogs Kenny.”
Biggest dogs in a game since 1969, I think a lot more people are talking about the Steelers being an underdog than Miller thinks, especially since it’s the biggest one of the season.
Add to that, most of the secondary did not practice on Wednesday and T.J. Watt is still out.
It’s nice that Miller thinks they’ll be playing a powerful Steelers team, but they’re currently 1-3 and could quickly fall out of playoff contention soon.
It could be ugly on Sunday in Buffalo, but you never know in the NFL, especially with a hyped-up rookie quarterback.
