Bengals wanted to avenge JuJu Smith-Schuster hit on Burfict

A writer who has covered the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2002 reported via Twitter that the Cincinnati Bengals entered Monday night's stunning 27-17 win against the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium intending to "put some big hits" on JuJu Smith-Schuster because some on the team "still harbored bad feelings" from Smith-Schuster's hit on former Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict that gave Burfict a concussion, and then mimicked his taunting of Burfict days later as he helped a teammate celebrate a touchdown.
