Bell caught a pass from Ben Roethlisberger and picked up eight yards on the play early in the second, but he was tackled by Burfict and his right leg got caught in an awkward position, leading to a knee injury that knocked him out of the game.
After making the tackle and staying on the ground with Bell for a few seconds, Burfict sprung to his feet and scurried away. The Steelers took it as Burfict celebrating the play and were not happy about it.
Burfict already has a reputation for being a dirty player based on these kinds of plays, so that won’t help him gain the benefit of the doubt. And regardless of whether or not you think he was celebrating, an issue like this is sure to stoke the rivalry between these AFC North squads even more.
