Bengals DT Domata Peko on The Steelers: ‘We Hate Them’, They’re ‘Pieces of Bleep’
The Pittsburgh Steelers & Cincinnati Bengals rivalry is one the best the NFL has to offer and it got that much better after the 2 teams squared off in the AFC Wild Card playoff matchup in January.
A game that saw Ben Roethlisberger leave the field on a cart while Bengals fans threw garbage at him. A game where Bengals linebacker VontazeBurfict knocked Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown out of the game with a vicious hit. Not to mention, Joey Porter causing a Bengals penalty by being on the field.
On Tuesday, during a promotional event for the NFL International Series in London, Domata Peko made it clear he wasn’t over that playoff game quite yet.
“According to Simon A Chester of Steelers Wire, the event’s host askedPeko to complete the following sentence: “The Pittsburgh Steelers are…” His answer? “Pieces of bleep.”
Peko also said, “Oh, we hate them. For us, each time we play the Steelers, the whole city is like ‘beat these fools,’ and whenever we beat them, it is a big party in Cincinnati. It’s a big rivalry for us.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Cincinnati to face off against the Bengals in Week 2 of the 2016 NFL season.
