Smith-Schuster's suspension upheld, Steelers WR to miss Week 14

SMITH-SCHUSTER AND ILOKA SUSPENDED AFTER FIERY MNF CLASH

"I thought [the Smith-Schuster hit] happened in the context of a football play".

Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka won the appeal of his one-game suspension and will not have to sit out Sunday's home game against Chicago.

After the game, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown said Schuster's hit on Burfict was "karma", likely referring Burfict head-shot to Brown in last season's playoffs.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that".

NFL Vice President of Football Operations JON RUNYAN issued the suspensions. Some players like the big hits but hate the way they're penalized, while others know the dangers and risks of head injuries.

Roethlisberger felt Smith-Schuster deserved a fine.

Mayfield, Love, Jackson Named Heisman Finalists
The senior finished in fourth in 2015 before climbing up to third in 2016, throwing 76 touchdown passes between those two seasons. Love led the Pac-12 and was second in the nation with 1,973 rushing yards and scored 17 touchdowns.

As Boswell stepped up to take kick the game-winning kick, before he could get a foot on the ball the play was whistled dead for an offside call on Cincy's Josh Shaw.

"I think so", McVay said of whether targeting would work in the NFL. "There's no way I see two people get post-play penalties, post-play infractions that don't have anything to do with football and you get the same suspension as a guy that is making a football play in a football game".

Smith-Schuster was flagged for unnecessary roughness and taunting after his blindside hit on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 victory Monday night. For instance, shortly after Smith-Schuster's punishment was announced, the Twitter police unearthed this hit by Falcons receiver Julio Jones delivered to Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo.

"We don't want any of that stuff", Lewis said Wednesday. "I don't know that that's necessarily fair". You then "celebrated" the play by standing over him and taunting him.

Meanwhile, Gronkowski had clearer intentions with his actions that were made well after the play was over.
