LenDale White Stomps On Terrible Towel

There is no doubt that the Titans handed the Steelers an embarrassing loss on Sunday. But LenDale White's exclamation point on the victory may have been a dumb move considering the two teams could face each other in the AFC Championship.

Ideally you don't want to give another team any kind of ammunition to fire them up. The Titans' convincing win will likely fuel both teams for a potential rematch, but you can count on Mike Tomlin to show the Steelers the video of White stomping on the towel multiple times if they do have an AFC Championship rematch.

This isn't the first time that an opposing player has "desecrated" a Terrible Towel.
The last time was back in 2005, when T.J. Houshmandzadeh used a Terrible Towel as a shoe rag. That didn't turn out too well for the Bengals. Pittsburgh beat them in the first round of the playoffs on its way to the Super Bowl title that year.
