The Sports Illustrated cover jinx has shown no mercy to the NFL this season. Looking back at the magazine’s 2017 NFL season preview, there were four athletes featured as giants on the regional covers with a bunch of other league stars trying to tackle them. Those four athletes were Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, David Johnson and J.J. Watt. Two out of those four have suffered season-ending injuries already. A third is out until Thanksgiving at best. The jinx continues.
