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

SMITH-SCHUSTER AND ILOKA SUSPENDED AFTER FIERY MNF CLASH

Gronkowski delivered a late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White while he was down following an interception, and then on Monday night Smith-Schuster laid out Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a peel-back block and then stood over him after the hit.

Ben Roethlisberger does not think it's fair Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster was punished the same as Rob Gronkowski for their hits over the weekend.

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. Karma is karma. Karma is in life. Brown held on to the ball to score the eventual tying touchdown.

But Smith-Schuster made the situation a million times worse by standing over Burfict and taunting him.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger thinks Rob Gronkowski deserved harsher punishment than JuJu Smith-Schuster

Smith-Schuster's appeal was heard by James Thrash. "I was trying to get a big block for Le'Veon Bell for him to get upfield", Smith-Schuster said. "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it". There were four penalties for unnecessary roughness, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, one for taunting, one for roughing the passer and two 15-yard penalties for grabbing the facemask.

"The guy just left his feet and hit me in the head".

Coach Marvin Lewis said that he and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin - who are on the league's competition committee - have addressed it with their teams. All I saw was the first Bengal was going to tackle ... and my instinct is I gotta block for my teammate. The on-field officials are also inconsistent about deciding when to eject a player and when to allow a player to stay in the game after a personal foul. "I apologize for that and with that being said, I hope he gets better". His hit on Brown's head during a playoff game at Paul Brown Stadium in the 2015 season moved the Steelers in range for a winning field goal and drew a three-game suspension from the league.
