Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Accuses The Entire Bengals Team Of Dirty Play
One of the biggest & nastiest rivalries in the NFL is between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals. That was even more evident after the two teams faced off against each other in last year’s playoffs, a game that was marred by controversy after Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict took out Steelers WR Antonio Brown with a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit.
In November, Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell had his season ended by Burfict as well. Six months later, Bell is still not over that hit, which he believes was dirty. He recently accused the entire Bengals team of being dirty.
“I don’t think it was just (Burfict); it was like the whole team was really out there trying to like twist my ankles and do little dirty stuff in between the piles,” Bell said.
“I feel like there’s a lot of teams that do that, try to take me out of the game,” said Bell. “A lot of teams in our division really play that same way, so obviously I know that — I just was kind of ignorant to that at first because I didn’t think people played like that.
“I never was injured in football (before getting to the NFL).”
The Steelers & Bengals both play each other on September 18th and again on December 18th. Can’t wait.
