CLEVELAND, OHIO: Jake Paul aka The Problem Child’s encounter with the New York Jets’ new quarterback Aaron Rodgers immediately before his injury, has earned YouTuber-turned-boxer the reputation of being a bad luck charm among NFL fans.
Jake Paul has a history of bringing bad luck to sporting teams.
Liverpool supporters claimed last year that the Reds’ performance declined as soon as the American YouTuber began rooting for them.
Jack Paul met Aaron Rodgers at stands before injury at Jets debut
The New York Jets and the Buffalo Bulls engaged in a thrilling matchup at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The Jets edged closer to victory in the game, but there was less celebration than anyone might have expected.
Aaron Rodgers started the game as their 53rd quarterback, but he wasn’t thrilled with his debut. He left the pitch with a terrible injury that may have forced him to sit out for the rest of the season.
The former Green Bay Packers player suffered an Achilles injury on the fourth play for the Jets, which most experts predict would terminate his season.
The Jets managed to pull off a 10-point comeback victory despite the severe blow to their confidence.
Fans, however, have found a target for their annoyance as they celebrate the win and cope with the injury of their top player. It was none other than Jake Paul. But why?
The YouTuber and younger brother of Logan Paul met and greeted Rodgers by the stands ahead of the game, but as the game progressed and the quarterback found himself injured, Paul’s name was taken as a bad-luck charm.
Fans blame Jake Paul for Aaron Rodger’s injury
Fans were quick to take a dig at Jake Paul. A user wrote, “Minutes later Rogers helped off the field. Jake is bad mojo.”
Another user wrote, “Now we know why he got hurt.” Another one said, “Football Gods didn’t like that.”
