Steelers kicker Chris Boswell scored 18 points against Cincinnati in last weekend’s game, making six perfect field goal attempts in a row. After the game, though, Boswell’s high ended as he found a “random” drug test notice taped to his locker back in Pittsburgh.

Bringing his team back from a 14-point deficit, Boswell became the first kicker this season to nail six field goals in a row, only two shy of the 2007 single-game record held by deceased Titans kicker Rob Bironas, set during a bout with the Houston Texans.

Boswell returned to the Steeler’s facility on Wednesday and found the drug test notice waiting for him.

The third-year kicker found insult in the implication that he was doping just because he had such a great game.

Fox Sports notes that Boswell isn’t the first kicker to get a drug test notice after a good game. Also this year, the Colts’ Pat McAfee was treated to a drug test after a 67-yard punt.

McAfee also found insult with the obvious assumption made by the NFL that he was doping just because he performed an amazing feat on the field.
