As he did last week against the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith Schuster continued to disrespect the opposition dancing on the Bengals logo at midfield.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster disrespect another opponent by dancing on the Bengals logo at midfield in the pre-game one week after doing the same to the Buffalo Bills. Pittsburgh played Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium on Monday Night Football. The Steelers lost on Sunday night last week at Buffalo.
Smith-Schuster posted a video of him on the logo at midfield to Tiktok with the caption “Told to stop dancing on the logo and not be yourself so….😉🤣🤣.” The Bengals took exception to the disrespect on their logo and seemed to target him a bit more on tackles during the game.
Cincinnati has done a reasonably good job against Smith-Schuster in his career. Smith-Schuster has 30 receptions for 296 yards and three touchdowns in six career games against Cincinnati. The dancing on the Bengals logo by Smith-Schuster seemed to fire Cincinnati up. Cincinnati has played their best game of the season.
Smith-Schuster fired up Buffalo when he danced on the Bills logo resulting in a 26-14 Steelers loss. The Cincinnati defense stymied Pittsburgh and Smith-Schuster as they took a 17-0 lead at halftime against 11-2 Pittsburgh. Cincinnati entered the night with 10 straight losses to Pittsburgh.
Smith-Schuster disregarded his critics following the disrespect of the Bills logo in his decision to do the same to the Bengals logo. Smith-Schuster has a history with Cincinnati receiving a personal foul penalty on an illegal block against former Bengals linebacker Vontaze Berfict.
Whether or not the play fired Cincinnati up is subjective but their play on the field indicated otherwise. Cincinnati shutout Pittsburgh in a half for the first time since 1990. The Bengals shutout the Steelers for the first three quarters in a 27-3 victory. Cincinnati swept Pittsburgh that season.
