The Steelers improved to 10-2 with their win over the Bengals and have now won seven games in a row. He went right for Burfict's head, launching at an upward angle as the linebacker was in a defenseless position.
Smith-Schuster will likely be fined, or possibly even suspended for his actions, and it's clear to see why from the video of the play further down in this article. The hit was illegal - thanks to the "Hines Ward rule" that outlawed those types of blocks delivered up high to unsuspecting defenders - and then Smith-Schuster drew an extra flag for taunting after standing over his target. "All I saw was the first Bengal was going to tackle. and my instinct is I gotta block for my teammate", Smith-Schuster said.
He did say he didn't single out Burfict, Public Enemy No. 1 in Pittsburgh, in retaliation for past hits on Brown and RB Le'Veon Bell, ripping up Bell's knee late in the 2015 season.
Burfict has some history with the Steelers.
Asked if that comment was related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody". It wasn't away from the ball, it wasn't a hit on a kicker or a defenseless player. Ben Roethlisberger doesn't think that's right. Also, I believe that that's not me. "I can assess a judgment on the fact that he stood over him and that's not how we play and that's not reflective of the sportsman he is. Praying he gets better".
I don't have any intentions to hurt anyone when I play football. I apologize for standing over him and that isn't me. Burfict was carted off the field after the play. On Smith-Schuster's play he was making a block, albeit a somewhat unnecessary one, during a play, while Gronkowski's hit came after the whistle had been blown.
