Discipline starts fallout for cringe-worthy Steelers-Bengals

JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

Shortly after the suspensions were announced, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell came to the defense of Iloka, as well as his teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster.

First, Smith-Schuster leveled Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a blindside block and stood over him, taunting him. Smith-Schuster wasn't ejected for the block which sent Burfict off the field on the cart, but was penalized for unnecessary roughness and taunting as he stood over the injured Burfict.

Ioka was suspended for a hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the end zone in the fourth quarter when Brown was deemed to be a defenseless receiver.

It has been reported that Smith-Schuster will appeal the decision.

Congress-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and seven of its affiliates, and Voice of America . A vote on the measures is expected next week.

However, that doesn't justify what Smith-Schuster did on Monday night. Burfict celebrated - the Bengals say he was just happy to make a big play - but Bell and the Steelers took umbrage.

After the game, Smith-Schuster tweeted, "I don't have any intentions to hurt anyone when I play football". Brown was also famously hit in the head near the of a wild card game two years ago between these two teams by Burfict.

"I also think that there were some tremendous displays of competitive spirit and play last night that probably won't get talked about as much as it should".

Burfict lay motionless on the field for a period of time but was able to walk into the locker room under his own power.

Lebanon's PM Hariri withdraws his resignation
The Lebanese President had said at the time Hariri was being held against his will in Riyadh, a claim Hariri denied. Last week, Lebanese President Michel Aoun met with Hariri and announced that he would not accept his resignation.

After the game, Brown yelled "karma" repeatedly, then said "Touchdown Brown" will pay Smith-Schuster's eventual fine.

"I'll acknowledge that there were some unfortunate things in that game that we don't need in our game - by both sides", Tomlin said.

The early severe back injury to Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier cast a cloud over the rest of the game Monday night, but with 239 yards in penalties between the two teams there was plenty of physical play to go around.

"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.
