Vontaze Burfict 'livid' after nasty blindside block from Juju Smith-Schuster

Juju Hit Burfict

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cincinnati Bengals cornerback George Iloka have been suspended one game each by the NFL for violating league safety rules. All-Pro wideout Antonio Brown went as far calling the incident "karma" for all of the questionable hits Burfict had placed on Steeler players over the years.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn't think Smith-Schuster should have received the same suspension as Gronkowski.

The NFL punished Smith-Schuster Tuesday for his crack-back block on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Iloka for his late helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers receiver Antonio Brown after Brown's TD catch tied the game and dealt the second-to-last blow in another Bengals' collapse against the Steelers. "Your conduct following the hit fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player".

Runyan shared similar sentiments in issuing Iloka's suspension.

Now it looks like he'll be slapped with the same one-game ban that the National Football League hit Rob Gronkowski with on Monday for his dirty hit on Tre'Davious White.

Nintendo games to appear on rival console
The Nvidia Shield is priced at 1,499 Yen (US$226) and then you have the cost of the games on top of that, which is now unknown. This has ensured that gamers eager to play a new version of Mario Kart can only do so if they buy a Nintendo machine.

Burfict's actions after the hit upset Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin. He's got to work hard so people understand the type of man he is from a sportsmanship standpoint and that's not something that's going to happen overnight. "I didn't mean to stand over him". "Is he just trying to get back in the good graces of God because of that?" The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. I don't know. It's flawed, that's the best way I can put it.

He also apologized in a postgame tweet. Brown was a game-time decision.

"I like that. I like that", said Brown of the block.

Iloka's agent, Ron Slavin, released a statement saying thank you to Brooks but reiterated that they felt Iloka did nothing wrong.
