PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As if yesterday’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars wasn’t enough, many fans woke up to an email from the NFL Shop saying the Pittsburgh Steelers are conference championship bound.
The email that went out included a photo of Steelers clothing, including an Antonio Brown jersey, with the title “Conference Championship Bound.”
The only problem, the Steelers lost to the Jaguars 45-42 in Sunday’s NFL divisional round.
Many fans took to social media to voice their displeasure in the mistake.
The NFL shop emailed fans with an apology late Monday afternoon saying:
Fanatics experienced an error in our email distribution system which incorrectly triggered NFLshop.com emails to a portion of NFL fans. We take full responsibility for the mistake an have already made sure it won’t happen again.
