Steelers’ Marcus Gilbert Takes Shot at “Choking” Bengals on Twitter
There aren’t many formal rules regarding athletes and post-game comments, but it would seem that unofficially, you don’t go after the team you just beat 33-20 immediately following the game.
Nobody told that to Marcus Gilbert, who went on Twitter to let the world know that he wants to play the Bengals again in the playoffs “where they choke.”
All I want for Christmas is the bengals. Would love to see them in the playoffs where they choke. The talking is done between the lines

It’s not clear where this is coming from, but they are division rivals, so this is probably just coming from a place of general hate, rather than from a specific incident (though they did scuffle before the game).
He seems to be indicting them for trash talking, and he might just get his wish as the Steelers are currently tied with the Jets and Chiefs for the two AFC wild card spots.
