Good news: Vontaze Burfict avoided suspension for the second time this season following his ejection from last Sunday's game for contacting an official.

Bad news: We're guessing this isn't the last time Burfict,Authentic Antonio Brown Jersey, has a run-in with opposing players, the mercurial Bengals linebacker,Womens Le'Veon Bell Jersey, officials or league representatives.

Some of Burfict's Bengals teammates think officials are paying close attention to the linebacker and that attention has invariably led to more penalty flags.

"I think he's getting targeted a lot," wide reciever A.J. Green said on Sunday. "On some of those plays I don't think anybody else would make it. They wouldn't get that call. I think he just has a target on his back. That's the way he is. He's an emotional guy. That's the guy we want. I wouldn't trade him for anybody in the world."

But more than that,Womens James Conner Jersey, according to Schefter, an unnamed Bengals player told Adam Schefter that he believes Burfict was provoked by officials on at least three occasions in recent weeks. Those provocations,Authentic Brian Dawkins Jersey, included "officials cursing at Burfict on multiple occasions, and there is video that shows officials coming into contact with the linebacker three times in the past four games."

The league denied the charges though it's easy to conclude that Burfict's reputation had everything to do with the personal-foul flag on this late hit:

So you can understand why some folks might be talking conspiracy. But Bengals coach Marvin Lewis isn't looking for excuses -- nor does he think officials are provoking Burfict.

"Officials have a job to do,Authentic Carson Wentz Jersey, and I've explained this to Vontaze, get back to the huddle and get going," Lewis said. "They have a job to do and they are going to separate players,T. J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey, and players are in a situation where they are there. That's not what this is about, where the NFL should be. So, and he understands that, and that's the most important thing. We don't need to jaw with anyone after the play, any of the players, so that's important.

"It would shock me if those things occur, but again," Lewis continued. "I know on occasions supposedly they have, that would shock me."

Lewis added: "He has to understand. I've pointed it out in those situations. Sometimes what happens, we pay a price because he hurts us when it's on the field that way, you push back and it's the official. You can't do that. He knows better. We pay a price, and then he's not on the field, so both ways."

Here's a list of some of Burfict's transgressions that have previously led to fines and suspensions:

There’s no time to sit around and celebrate last week’s win because the Pittsburgh Steelers have to turn around and take on the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. This will be a showdown of two of the hottest teams in the NFL. Both teams are riding four-game winning streaks and lead their respective divisions.

Both teams are coming off close wins over bad football teams and neither one wants to give up its winning streaks. The Steelers limped back to Pittsburgh after their win over the Colts but still have plenty to worry about this week.

In watching the last few Titans’ games, one thing really stands out. This team plays hard. Every guy goes all out on every play. That level of consistent effort is impressive and has everything to do with why they are playing so well. If there’s anything

but Mariota is deadly with his feet,The Titans are going to come at the Steelers in waves through the run game. Having a mobile QB like Marcus Mariota gives them so many options for attacking the Steelers’ defense. DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry are the primary runners, and they even use Adoree Jackson as a specialist.

One thing you can be sure of is when both teams are coming off a short week the football can get ugly. The Steelers looked rusty coming off the bye week so we will have to see if they can pull it together in just a few days to prepare for a very good football team.

Peachtree Ridge grad Cameron Heyward was announced Tuesday as one of the 32 nominees for the NFL’s prestigious Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

Each NFL team nominated one player — Heyward is the Pittsburgh Steelers’ selection — for the award created in 2014 to honor the late founding owner of the Steelers. It is given to a player who best demonstrates the qualities of on-field sportsmanship, respect for the game and opponents, including fair play, and integrity in competition.

Past recipients of the award are Frank Gore (2016), Curtis Martin,Womens Antonio Brown Jersey, Charles Woodson (2015) and Larry Fitzgerald (2014). The winner is determined by a vote of current NFL players. An NFL Legends committee of Warrick Dunn, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler will select the eight finalists (four from the NFC and four from the AFC) who will be up for voting.

Joe Mixon (justifiably) questioned his coach’s strategy of going away from a rushing attack that had been highly effective. While Marvin Lewis saw this as a sign of immaturity,Authentic Le'Veon Bell Jersey,After the Bengals’ Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, most fans did not.

and Mixon showed that he has the personality required to continue to improve in the NFL,Authentic James Conner Jersey,Fast forward to last Friday, as he went out of way to make sure he was doing all he could to help his team succeed.

who is back with the team after Jake Fisher went to injured reserve. When the NFLPA president is praising a rookie,Womens Brian Dawkins Jersey,The praise came from veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston, the first-year player must be doing something right.

The fact that the talented rookie running behind one of the least talented lines in the league looked inward to investigate his flaws says a lot.

Fans and analytics people alike have noticed that Mixon is getting next to no push up front. But the running back’s humility seemed to have paid off, as Mixon had a solid game and his third touchdown of the season in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Just a reminder that this Thursday when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Tennessee Titans they will wear the best looking alternate uniforms in the NFL. According to Steelers director of communications,Womens Carson Wentz Jersey, Pittsburgh will sport the Color Rush uniforms this week.

There was some genuine concern when the announcement was made that the Steelers’ uniforms would get the monochromatic treatment that we’d all have to endure an all yellow ensemble. But instead Pittsburgh got all black and they look great.

Meanwhile, the Titans are likely to wear their powder blue versions.

It's quite a scheduling coincidence for Tennessee Titans assistant head coach Dick LeBeau.

but just four days after the 80-year-old faced the Cincinnati Bengals - the only NFL team for which LeBeau has served as head coach and also served as an assistant longer than he's coached anywhere else - on Sunday,Neither team is in the Titans' division,T. J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey, he gets to face the Pittsburgh Steelers as their former long-time defensive coordinator as well as defensive backs coach.

It is LeBeau's first matchup with the Steelers since he joined the Titans in 2015.

“If you spend one, three or four years with him, I like to think you grew up with him, two,” said defensive end Cam Heyward, who played four seasons for LeBeau. “I think a lot of our characteristics are Dick LeBeau-driven. … Our goals and stuff are still Coach LeBeau's and the way he wanted it because our coaches were under him. I think his imprint is a lasting imprint.”

That's why Heyward expected Thursday to be “weird” when LeBeau returns to Heinz Field as assistant head coach of the Tennessee Titans.

“I still miss him saying: ‘What's up Buckeye? How are you doing?' ” Heyward said Monday. “His Christmas night tale that he would tell us. There are so many stories I have that I'll cherish. But this isn't a funeral or anything. Coach LeBeau is going to be out there trying to kick our (butt), so we have to be ready.”

who had LeBeau on his staff for eight seasons,Coach Mike Tomlin, agreed.

he's not the kind of guy you want to see in a headset on the other sideline,“As awesome as it will be to see Dick on a personal note,” Tomlin said.

The Titans arrive in Pittsburgh with a four-game winning streak behind a defense Tomlin called “quintessential Dick LeBeau.” The Titans ranks sixth against the run (91.9 yards per game) and also are sixth-best in third-down percentage (33.3).

“They're taking the ball away. They're minimizing run game. They're making the explosion and splash plays,” Tomlin said. “That is the signature of his ball. That's a significant reason why they're 6-3 and division leaders. ... They played two-on-one on A.J. Green. Everybody else played man-to-man. They won all the possession battles. They won the game. That's Dick LeBeau.”

and defensive coordinator from 1984 to 1991. He returned as defensive coordinator and assistant head coach from 1997 to 2000,LeBeau was the Bengals' defensive backs coach from 1980 to 1983, and was the Bengals' head coach from 2000 to 2002.

He is credited with creating the zone blitz while he was the Bengals' defensive coordinator.

He was the Steelers' defensive backs coach from 1992 to 1994, and defensive coordinator from 1995 to 1996 and again from 2004 to 2014

Two days removed from their last game and two days before their next the Steelers had five players either limited or out of practice Tuesday.

Starters Vance McDonald (ankle) and Joe Haden (fractured fibula) did not practice. Haden was already ruled out for Thursday's 8:25 p.m. kickoff and Mike Tomlin said Sunday that any players who limped out of Lucas Oil Stadium likely wouldn't recover in time to face the Tennessee Titans.

Fellow first-choice player Mike Mitchell (ankle) was limited.

Martavis Bryant (illness) and James Harrison (back) also did not practice.

William Gay (non-injury),Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury), Ramon Foster (non-injury) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (non-injury) all fully participated in practice. Heyward-Bey went in and out of the Steelers' 20-17 win against the Indianapolis Colts with a foot injury.

Jesse James and to a lesser extent Xavier Grimble would pick up any snaps McDonald can't take.

Justin Hunter has backed up Bryant while Robert Golden has filled in for Mitchell.

Coty Sensabaugh filled in for Haden at left cornerback in Indianapolis and is slated to start on Thursday.
