The Bengals unraveled in the final minute at home against the Steelers Saturday night, with two 15-yard penalties moving Pittsburgh up 30 yards to make the game-winning field goal.
One was on Vontaze Burfict for this elbow against defenseless Antonio Brown. The other was on Pacman Jones for shoving Joey Porter – a Pittsburgh assistant coach. The Steelers claim Porter was on the field to help the injured Brown; the Bengals players say he was talking trash.
It worked. Jones – who claims Brown was ‘faking’ – ended up shoving Porter, and boom, the Bengals were done.
Reporters claim Porter will be fined, but who cares?
