The AFC North clash between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals was always going to be a feisty affair, and that was clear to see throughout the game, especially in one incident in the fourth quarter of the contest.
As Smith-Schuster talked about his block on Burfict after the game, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown said in Smith-Schuster's direction, "Don't even trip, I got straight cash on it. KARMA". The Bengals announced nearly immediately that Burfict was out for the game with a head injury. However, he did eventually walk into the locker room under his own power. Burfict is in concussion protocol and missed practice on Wednesday.More news: Facebook Launched 'Messenger Kids' Standalone App for Children Under 13
The 21-year-old was not ejected for the block that sent Burfict off the field on a cart but was penalised for unnecessary roughness and taunting as he stood over the injured Bengals man. Brown held on to the ball to score the eventual tying touchdown. On their next drive, they kicked a game-winning field goal to win 23-20 on the night against their AFC North rivals.
On the sixth play of the game Monday night, Bell and Burfict went at it. Bell ended up grabbing Burfict's facemask and shoving him to the ground, drawing a penalty. I don't know. Is he just trying to fix his karma or what?More news: Some Nintendo Wii games coming to NVIDIA Shield TV in 1080p
"I didn't think it was warranted", Roethlisberger said. Also, I believe that that's not me. "Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, things like that". "I apologize for that and with that being said, I hope he gets better".
"On a passing play to a running back you lined up as a defender and delivered a violent and unnecessary blindside shot to his head and neck area". We all put our lives on the line when we come out here every week, and you don't want anything like that to happen to a player, no matter what team you play for or how big the rivalry is. "I'm sure he's sorry for that".More news: Google Pulls YouTube From Amazon Devices
In any case, Burfict should be considered questionable for the Bengals' match against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
