Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster lasted to get the blame Monday to get a high priced decrease by the Pittsburgh Steelers, saying on Twitter he”let everyone down” following having a fourth-quarter fumble.
“It is hard to really go out just like this,” Smith-Schuster said following the game. “I got tackled, I fumbled, game finished. I was only trying to get down. They left a good play”
Smith-Schuster, 2-2, continued to be critical of himself Monday, even after a game where he had 11 catches for 115 yards — getting the funniest NFL player to attain 100 receptions in a season, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

With the reduction, the Steelers dropped out of first place in the AFC North for the very first time since October. To acquire the division title, Pittsburgh (8-6-1) needs to beat Cincinnati next Sunday and also have Baltimore (9-6) lose at home to Cleveland.
If this will not happen, the Steelers would need the improbable scenario of an Indianapolis-Tennessee tie to make a wild card.
“We all have is an opportunity,” Cam Heyward said. “We just have to go play Cincinnati per week and then also get a win. You will never know exactly what could occur.”
