Antonio Brown happy about Juju Smith-Schuster's block on Burfict

Vontaze Burfict on his 2016 hit that left Antonio Brown concussed: 'He faked that'

In the fourth quarter, JuJu Smith-Schuster hit Vontaze Burfict with a brutal hit to the helmet.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, "As JuJu Smith-Schuster talked about his block on Vontaze Burfict, Antonio Brown kept yelling "Karma" in Smith-Schuster's direction".

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. During a playoff game following the 2015 regular season, Burfict went head hunting against Brown and ended up concussing him.

He also said that he "liked" the block. Smith-Schuster will likely be fined.

"HE FAKED THAT", Burfict says casually of the Brown hit before quickly trying to wave his own observation away. His list of questionable plays extends beyond the Bengals-Steelers rivalry. Burfict missed the first three games of the 2017 season for his illegal hit on Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman during a preseason game.

And while there's going to be a segment of the populations (particularly Steelers fans) who won't feel sympathetic for Burfict, there's really no excusing this sort of play when there's such a serious risk for injury.
