Steelers-Bengals was a violent mess and ‘terrible for the NFL’


Ben Roethlisberger disregarded an especially rough Steelers 23-20 triumph over the Bengals on Monday night that left some inclination nauseous over the game.

“This game is hard to watch for a number of reasons…terrible for the NFL and the game of football overall,” Cowboys great and Fox analyst Troy Aikman tweeted.

“The Steelers and Bengals do all that they can to be as confrontational as could be expected under the circumstances… it’s past football. This isn’t what rivalry is about,” Vikings Hall of Famer Cris Carter said on “First of all” Tuesday morning.

Restricting linebackers were the casualties of the two most severe minutes.

The Steelers’ Ryan Shazier remained overnight in a healing facility with back damage while whatever is left of the Steelers headed home with yet another unrealistic rebound close by, one that was so much like all the rest at Paul Brown Stadium.

Shazier, who is the main tackler in one of the NFL’s best resistances, hurt his back while making a handle in the primary quarter and was removed the field on a truck. He got tests at a neighborhood healing center that demonstrated no surgery was required “as of now,” the group said in an announcement.

Mentor Mike Tomlin went to him after the diversion. The Steelers were cheerful that Shazier would profit to Pittsburgh for Tuesday.

“Right now, we’re just happy that he’s getting the necessary medical attention that he deserves,” Tomlin said.

It was the most unnerving damage in a diversion loaded with awful and illicit hits. A large number of dollars in fines will be given out by the group later in the week.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been amidst a great part of the offensiveness in the contention. His hit to Antonio Brown’s head set up the Steelers’ triumphant field objective in the 2015 playoff and drew a three-diversion suspension. He’s kept up the fight on Twitter with Bell, who got his facemask and drove him down in the principal half Monday, drawing a punishment.

In the second half, receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster leveled Burfict with a high hit and after that remained over him, drawing a punishment. Burfict was taken off on a truck and was in blackout convention.
