Best Buffalo Bills player to wear #13: Stevie Johnson, Wide Receiver
Oh, what to say about Stevie Johnson. He first gained infamy for his “Why so serious?” touchdown celebration in which those words were written on his undershirt. Then a next week he’d double down on his infamy level with the team and those who watch all of those near-comeback videos.
To make a long story short, the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers faced off in a game in which everyone had trouble holding on to the ball. Buffalo tied the game, went to overtime, and forced a Steelers punt after sacking QB Ben Roethlisberger at the one-yard line. After moving into enemy territory, Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick ran a play-action pass, in which he launched a beauty to Johnson who appeared to have his man beat.
Johnson had the ball in his hands- until he didn’t. Johnson dropped the ball in what would be the Bills best chance to win the game. They’d lose 19-16, and later on, Johnson blamed God as the reason why he dropped the ball.
For a 7th round pick, he didn’t have too bad of a career. Over 3800 yards and 28 touchdowns are pretty good for someone picked that late. It’s too bad that he’s remembered for this moment instead of his accomplishments. For the rest of the players to wear #13, click here.
