Antoine Winfield Jr. got some sweet revenge that took some time to happen, but it was all worth it in the end.
In a Week 12 game against the Bucs, Tyreek Hill was having a monster game as he finished the day with 269 yards and three touchdowns.
At the end of a 75-yard touchdown in that game, Hill taunted rookie safety Antoine Winfield Jr. by throwing up a peace sign and then doing a back flip into the end zone for a 44-yard touchdown.
During Sunday’s Super Bowl, Hill made only seven catches for 73 yards as most of them came when the game was already decided. On a fourth-down incompletion intended for Hill, Winfield walked up to Hill and flashed the peace sign in the receiver’s face.
He was flagged for taunting, but it was worth it as he staed after the game.
“The taunting, man, it’s something I just had to do,” Winfield said. “When we played them earlier, Hill went off on us. He back-flipped in front of my face and gave me the peace sign. So it was only right that I gave him the peace sign right back to him. It felt amazing to do that. I’m not even gonna lie.”
Winfield finished the game with six tackles, an interception and two pass breakups.
