Le'Veon Bell trolls the Steelers with a curious tweet following their tie with the Browns on Sunday

Divisional Round - Jacksonville Jaguars v Pittsburgh Steelers

NFL Sunday's are finally back! Yesterday saw a massive 13 games, and there was plenty of action for fans to sink their teeth into. 

12 teams picked up their first win of the season, while another 12 suffered opening day defeat.

Interestingly though, two others struggled to a tie. 

On the road in week 1, the Pittsburgh Steelers visited the Cleveland Browns, expecting to cruise to victory against a franchise that really struggled in 2017.


But that wasn't the case. Despite taking a 21-7 lead into the fourth quarter, the Steelers were pegged back, as two late Cleveland TDs took the game into overtime. 

Despite swapping possession a massive seven (yes, seven) times in OT, neither team could put any more points on the board. 

The Browns came closest to doing so with 13 seconds left, but Zane Gonzalez saw his 43-yard field goal attempt blocked by T.J. Watt. 

It was a golden opportunity for the Browns to pick up their first win in 624 days - but one they just didn't take.

Arguably then, things could have been very embarrassing for Pittsburgh - as they clearly struggled at FirstEnergy Stadium against the worst franchise in the NFL. 

But that may have been something to do with the fact that they're still missing a star player.


As he has been all summer, running back Le'Veon Bell was absent once again on Sunday.

Bell continued his holdout on Sunday, and the Steelers suffered

He's holding out for a new contract and may not report back until week 10 - that's the latest he could return and still have the 2018 campaign count toward his free agency status. 

Judging by their disappointing tie at the weekend, the Steelers will surely be hoping that he's back way before then - because they certainly missed him against the Browns.

And following that uninspiring result, Bell himself took to Twitter to respond to what happened on the field - clearly, he was watching closely.  

Bell tweeted a curious message following Pittsburgh's draw


Le'Veon posted one simple 'curious' emoji, but his message has already received quite a lot of attention because people think he's trolling the Steelers. 

Many fans are reading pretty deep into what he's posted, suggesting that he's questioning Pittsburgh's failure to beat Cleveland. 

That's understandable, considering the Browns were on a 17-game losing streak. 

After receiving a bit of backlash, Bell then tweeted again to suggest that he wasn't actually throwing shade - but absolutely no one believes that. 

"Never witnessed a tie before"? Come on, that's a pretty lame excuse. 

By tweeting things like that, Bell is having fun at the expense of his team both on and off the field. He really wants that payday.
