Steelers' Brown cites 'karma' following win vs. Bengals

Steelers' Brown cites 'karma' following win vs. Bengals

Steelers wide receiver Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety Iloka have been banned for "violations of safety-related playing rules" during Pittsburgh's 23-20 comeback win in Cincinnati.

Now it looks like he'll be slapped with the same one-game ban that the National Football League hit Rob Gronkowski with on Monday for his dirty hit on Tre'Davious White.

Smith-Schuster has become a popular player in Pittsburgh due to his fun personality.




Brown and Burfict have history between them as the latter left the former with a concussion after drilling him in the head during a playoff game following the 2015 regular season. "You then "celebrated" the play by standing over him and taunting him".

There is no place in the National Football League for acts like this. Brown was also famously hit in the head near the of a wild card game two years ago between these two teams by Burfict. Then, he proved his ill intentions by taunting him afterward. The hit happened on a short pass to Le'Veon Bell, and resulted in Burfict leaving the field on a stretcher. "All I saw was the first Bengal was going to tackle. and my instinct is I gotta block for my teammate", Smith-Schuster said. Love you 50, Get better soon! Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin did not like the fact that his receiver stood over Burfict.

"Oftentimes, plays like that are teachable moments and when you look at it, you have an opportunity to look at ways that things could be safer and things like that", Tomlin said. He is a better sportsman than he displayed after the block and you got to acknowledge that. The wideout was on the receiving end of a helmet-to-helmet shot from Cincinnati safety George Iloka on a 6-yard touchdown reception with 3:55 remaining in the contest. There's a thin line between a legal and illegal hit, but Smith-Schuster straddled it just enough to be get a suspension. But they do. We'll work hard to make sure they don't happen again.
