Did the Patriots Swab the Steelers’ Locker Room with the Flu Virus?

The Pittsburgh Steelers play New England in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday . . . but at the moment they have a lot of players struggling with the FLU.

According to reports, as many as 15 players have come down with the bug, although coach Mike Tomlin says, quote, “We’ll be there, we’ll be ready to play, this is just part of normal things that happen over the course of a season.”

The Patriots have a reputation for doing whatever it takes to gain a competitive advantage, a.k.a. CHEATING. So it’s not surprising that there’s talk on social media that they might have INTENTIONALLY sent Pittsburgh the flu.

Someone even said that they might have weaponized the bug . . . by somehow having the Steelers’ locker room swabbed with the virus without them knowing it.

Obviously, that’s pretty over the top. And I’m not sure how many people SERIOUSLY believe something like that actually happened. But at this point, would you really be surprised if it was true?
