Tony Romo is deserving getting credit for being an incredible broadcaster with his predictions, but Maurice Jones-Drew is sneaking in with some truly incredible ones of his own. His latest was a terrifying accurate take on Jaguars-Steelers that has us reeling.

Check the date on this tweet, it’s Oct. 6 — two days before Jaguars-Steelers and what does MJD say?
“The Jaguars’ defense forces the Pittsburgh Steelers into four turnovers. As a result, Blake Bortles will outplay Ben Roethlisberger, who usually does well at home.”
Checking in on the game now and …. oh my god.
Five interceptions is awfully close to four turnovers, and while Bortles played horribly he did technically play better than Roethlisberger when it comes to passer rating — so this all checks out.
Steelers fans were making fun of Jones-Drew for his prediction earlier in the week, but he’s laughing last. It’s not the first time this has happened either. Before Week 1 Patriots fans mercilessly mocked MJD for saying the Chiefs would win and giving Andy Reid the edge in “coaching” over Bill Belichick.
The Chiefs went on to win 42-27 and Jones-Drew posted this.

Let this be a lesson to the next fanbase who laughs at a Maurice Jones-Drew prediction: He will probably have the last laugh.
