Don’t touch the Terrible Towel, period….

That was the message out of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ locker room after Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill pretended to rip the legendary black and gold towel after his 4-yard touchdown run.

The touchdown gave Cincinnati a 17-3 lead with 9:02 left in the second quarter, but the Steelers outscored the Bengals 21-3 the rest of the way to achieve their fifth straight win.

“Anybody that’s grabbed it has had something unfortunate happen,” Steelers offensive guard Ramon Foster said. “I hate to say the towel is cursed when you disrespect it, but you can’t do that. That’s too early in the game to be doing that type of stuff. He’s a pro. I’m sure his coaches would talk to him.”
