The Pittsburgh Steelers found out Tuesday JuJu Smith-Schuster and Greg Iloka were both suspended one game for their vicious hits in the Week 13 game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals.
After the games every week, NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger breaks down game film better than anyone. He looks at individual plays, shows them from different angles and truly delivers analysis which even the most seasoned NFL fan can find interesting.
At the moment this was created, the news of Iloka’s suspension was not known. However, the play Baldinger breaks down in the video below is of the hit which will have him miss Week 14, barring an appeal.
Take a look at the play, and be the judge whether this hit should have resulted in a one-game suspension, or just a fine for helmet-to-helmet contact.
