  • Antonio Brown cites 'karma' after vicious hits mar Steelers' win

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".

Roethlisberger told reporters he thought the suspension for Smith-Schuster was overly harsh, considering Smith-Schuster's hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict came on a bang-bang play in the course of a typical football situation. Karma is karma. Karma is in life.

If the National Football League is creating a new precedent, that could mean bad news for Smith-Schuster, Gronkowski and Iloka in the appeals process.

"Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wasn't happy with the rookie's actions either, as he said: "[Smith-Schuster] shouldn't have stood over him ... Burfict's teammates obviously didn't like that one bit, and the game officials flagged him for taunting and unnecessary roughness.

George Iloka had his suspension reduced, JuJu Smith-Schuster didn't and the Steelers weren't happy with either development Wednesday.

Gale Warning For Irish Coastal Waters Ahead Of Storm Caroline's Passage
According to the Met Office warning, "icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight" on Friday. Showers could affect all regions and at times more persistent periods of rain, sleet and snow are possible.

Quarterback Andy Dalton agreed that things got out of hand.

Smith-Schuster added extra attention to the play by standing over an injured Burfict, who has a history of concussions as well as unsafe hits and actions that have drawn the ire of the league office. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. I don't know. It's flawed, that's the best way I can put it.

"He shouldn't have stood over him".

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.

"The Competition Committee has clearly expressed its goal of "eliminating flagrant hits that have no place in our game" and has encouraged the league office to suspend offenders for egregious violations such as the one you committed last night", Runyan said in his ruling. "And me just playing ball, I hit him". Karma for him, too.
