On Monday night, the Steelers beat the Bengals, 23-20. Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown made the kind of plays that only they — two generational talents — are capable of making. A.J.

To make matters worse, he then stood over Burfict to taunt him.
Smith-Schuster got flagged on the play, but wasn’t ejected. Burfict left the field on a stretcher after spending several minutes on the ground. He was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game. He did appear to signal to the crowd that he was OK.
