Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams promises Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams Super Bowl tickets if they can beat the New York Jets.

Wow. Things are surely getting desperate in Pittsburgh.
After their stunning loss to Ryan Mallett and the Baltimore Ravens last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers now find themselves out of the AFC Playoff picture thanks to an emotional overtime victory Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets experienced against the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.
Only a Jets loss to the Buffalo Bills and a Steelers victory over the lowly Cleveland Browns can save them now.
Steelers linebacker Vince Williams understands this as well as anybody. The reason we know he understands is because he recently told Bills running back Karlos Williams (his brother) that he’d promise him Super Bowl tickets if they could find a way to knock off Todd Bowles’s squad this Sunday, via Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times.
“I was like, ‘Man, look, we’re trying to go to the Super Bowl, bro,” Vince told the Beaver County Times. “I told him I’d get him a [Super Bowl] ticket. I told him, ‘You could go to theSuper Bowl. It’s not like y’all are going to be going.”
Karlos of the Bills is a rookie who’s pleasantly surprised Buffalo with 10 touchdowns on the season.
“(Karlos) said they’re going to do their best,” Vince said. “They’re not packing it in. They really want to do a solid for Rex, too. Rex got fired (from New York) so I’m pretty sure they’re looking forward to getting a little bit of payback for their head coach.”
It should be interesting how fired up this playoff-less Bills team will be come kickoff.
