A recap of all that was stupid during the 17th weekend of the 2014 NFL season…
The stupidest fake…ever?
The Steelers had a 4th-and-9 at the Cincinnati 45-yard line with a three-point fourth-quarter lead. Relatively low-scoring game. So why in the hell are you running a fake punt?
And on top of all that, look at how much of a disorganized mess the fake was…
They deserved that interception and are lucky that silly move didn’t cost them the game and the division.

The stupidest challenge
Might as well call this the Jim Caldwell Award. I mean, the guy is a notoriously terrible challenger, but what the hell was he thinking could have been reversed on this play?
Eddie Lacy was the most “down by contact” player in NFL history, and yet Caldwell wasted a crucial second-half timeout in order to have that confirmed.
Illegal formation, indeed! pic.twitter.com/plVBdyUi9U
