The NFL seemingly has some fun with their “random” drug tests, often selecting players that just did something noteworthy for a test. The latest victim? Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell.

Boswell, in his second year out of Rice, tied a Steelers record with six field goals in the team’s 24-20 win over the Bengals on Sunday. Five of those six kicks came from beyond 40 yards, and apparently, that was enough to raise the NFL’s eyebrows and summon him for a “random” drug test.

He does sit in the same locker room as James Harrison.

If you play for the steelers and have a great game, you'll be called in for a drug test

Play well get drug tested.

I'm sure he hits 6 good fg's in a 10 minute span in practice.

Sure they are all tested for reasons like those like Chris is!

apparently Roger Godell didn't notice that Boswell barely cleared the crossbar on those 40+ yard FGs...

I thought his leg was high as a kite but his kickoffs were short. kicking all those field goals 6 and kickoff 6 would tried a leg out. to tell the truth I was rooting for him to get 21 points the hard way.

that was one of the weirder games I've ever seen. To go down 20-6, hold them at 20, then steadily chip away 3 points at a time to make it 20-18. I'm glad they got the late TD, but another 3 points to seal a 21-20 win would have been crazy.

I'm surprised since Boswell had a good game and they tested him, that the NFL didn't rationalize that James must have been taking something that influenced Boswell's good game, and then retested James too

I'm figuring after we win #7, the entire team will be tested.

Exactly. That's why I say it's bullshit.

Boswell is the next Gary Anderson. Unfortunately though, #1 never won a ring. Chris needs to do it for him!
