Vontaze Burfict’s head shot to Antonio Brown and a subsequent penalty on Adam “Pacman” Jones earned the Steelers and a hobbled Ben Roethlisberger enough yardage to set up a game-winning field goal—one that erased what had been a stunning fourth-quarter Bengals comeback.

That comeback came in reaction to Giovani Bernard’s turnover after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit by Ryan Shazier; officials kept the flags in their pockets after that one, but couldn’t deny the pure violence perpetuated upon Antonio Brown’s cerebrum by Burfict on Pittsburgh’s winning drive.
