The Jake Paul Curse Might Just Be The New Drake Curse For Athletes After Brutal Weekend

Whether you believe in curses or not, one thing is certain: the Drake Curse is very real and very dangerous for your favorite teams and athletes.

Seemingly everything the superstar rapper touches turns to s***, although he did finally get a win when he backed the Denver Nuggets to win an NBA Championships.

But that that’s the exception to prove the rule.

It turns out, however, that the curse may well have been lifted. Not because of anything that Drake himself did. But rather thanks to another major celebrity, Jake Paul.

It began on Sunday.

Paul, a lifelong Cleveland Browns fan, committed a cardinal sin. He jumped from the Browns to the Cincinnati Bengals.

“I’ve been a Browns fan my whole life, but it’s just tough, It’s been 26 years of terror,” he told Fox Sports Digital. “I’m sort of transitioning over to maybe be a Cincinnati Bengals fan. Unless the Browns can start to do something here.”

How’d that work out?

Well, the Browns destroyed the Bengals, 24-3, to open the 2023 NFL regular season.

But it didn’t stop there.

Paul took his bad juju to New York on Monday night where stood on the sidelines and dapped up Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers prior to the game against the Buffalo Bills.

We all know what came next.

Rodgers left the game after just four snaps due to injury and is feared to have suffered a torn achilles.

Sure, New York went on to win the game. But at what cost?

Not only is Paul 0-2 in Week 1 of the NFL season. But he’s also 0-2 in a big, big way.

Is this just a string of bad luck? Or is something larger forming?

The Jake Paul Curse sure seems to be alive and well, and NFL teams are advised to stay away.
