The NFL has upheld JuJu Smith-Schuster's one-game suspension for violating the league's player-safety policy.

Steelers wide receiver Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety Iloka have been banned for "violations of safety-related playing rules" during Pittsburgh's 23-20 comeback win in Cincinnati.

Smith-Schuster would wish Burfict well, but the National Football League wasn't about let him get away with such a reckless hit. Sure, it's a violent game, but the rules expressly forbid hits like the one Smith-Schuster laid on Burfict.

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. He has continued to make a couple of key catches per week, and even had his second touchdown of the season a couple of games ago, despite dropping a pass earlier.

Gronkowski's hit was debatably more malicious than Smith-Schuster's. "Your conduct following the hit fell far below the standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player".

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

Burfict's actions after the hit upset Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin. "I didn't mean to stand over him".

"I was just grateful I was able to get through the game", Brown said. I shouldn't have done that. Love you 50, Get better soon!

Ravens CB Smith suspended 4 games for PED violation
Dixon had an additional two games tacked onto his suspension in September for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. We'll step up, and we'll still play at a really high level in the secondary.

He also apologized in a postgame tweet.

"I like that. I like that", said Brown of the block. Karma is karma. Karma is in life.

Meanwhile, Antonio Brown, the star of the show, is still working through a sprained toe that had him questionable for Monday's game.

Iloka's agent, Ron Slavin, released a statement saying thank you to Brooks but reiterated that they felt Iloka did nothing wrong.
