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

Juju Smith-Schuster just did to Vontaze Burfict what the linebacker has done to dozens of other National Football League players in his career. One of those injuries occurred when Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster went head hunting against Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and knocked him out of the game after a scary scene that involved Burfict getting stretchered off the field.

"First thing I thought about was like 'Damn, damn 10, 15-yard penalty, '" Smith-Schuster said.

He did the same for Antonio Brown with a concussing hit to the receiver's head that, ultimately, cost the Cincinnati Bengals that campaign's AFC Wild Card game.

It's worth noting that Smith-Schuster did apologize on Twitter after the game, saying "he didn't mean to hurt" Burfict.

The company's restructure comes amid a tough run-up to Christmas, traditionally the retail sector's busiest period of the year. Accounts for the year to January show a turnover of £418million, on which it made an operating loss of £0.5million.

For the record, the Steelers won a thrilling clash 23-20. His list of questionable plays extends beyond the Bengals-Steelers rivalry.

He also said he should've pulled up on the block. The Bengals linebacker told ESPN the Magazine's Dotun Akintoye he believes Brown flopped on the play in order to draw a flag.

While the injury to Shazier was unintentional, Smith-Schuster was called for two penalties on the play - one for unnecessary roughness and one for taunting as he stood over the injured Burfict after the hit.

A few years ago, Smith-Schuster's block would have been completely legal. "Now that I know that happened I just go out there and protect myself, just so I don't allow it to happen again", Bell said. "I hope he's OK and I hope he gets better".
