Juju Smith-Schuster is probably going to get fined and possibly suspended after tonight’s Bengals-Steelers game. In the fourth quarter of the game, Smith-Schuster delivered a vicious blindside block on notorious Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. After the hit, Smith-Schuster stood over Burfict to taunt him.
Burfict was carted off the field while immobilized and evaluated for a head injury, though he eventually wound up walking into the locker room under his own power.
It’s worth noting that Smith-Schuster doesn’t have a history of dirty play, while Burfict is widely considered one of the dirtiest players in the league. Just seems like the Steelers-Bengals rivalry brings this kind of thing out of guys.
