NFLer Drops Game-Winning Touchdown, Blames God

11/29/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Buffalo Bills WR Steve Johnson dropped what would have been the game-winning touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers today in overtime -- but it wasn't his fault he choked, it was God's.

The Steelers ended up winning the game 19-16 ... but we think Steve Johnson has bigger problems on his hands.

God wants to keep him humble, perhaps?

perhaps GOD is a Steelers fan...I know he's not a Redskins fan (said she from DC)

Can God choose sides or is that conflict of interest?

Glad to see somebody can make fun of all the idiots that thank God for getting the game winning touchdown by blaming him when they screw up. Funny guy.

That's funny. Damn funny.

However, if you are not a die-hard sports fan, you're not going to get it. It's a running joke. So many people praise god in sports when they succeed, so it's always been a running debate for many years as to why none of these althetes who praise God for their successes ever blame god for their failures. It's one of those dreadful sports cliche deals that always makes you roll your eyes.

This is a joke. I'm not sure anyone who works for TMZ even watches sports. Nor most of the forum users who frequent TMZ. Not surprisingly, it's a joke that went completely over the heads of most people.

There's a George Carlin bit about how players always thank god when they win but never blame him when they lose. Nice to see somebody finally

Good for him!! How many athletes thank God after a touchdown. Why should God only get credit for the good stuff?
