The way Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams sees it, the Steelers should have made it to Super Bowl 50. However, that Super Bowl run was ruined by the hit on WR Antonio Brown from Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict.
"For me, my rival throughout my year will be the Cincinnati Bengals," Williams told ESPN. "I don't think there was any doubt in my mind if AB was not interfered on or hit the way he was hit, however you want to label it -- there's no doubt we go on and give the Broncos hell."
The hit from Burfict gave Brown a concussion that resulted in him sitting out the Steelers' playoff loss to the Denver Broncos. Of course, the flag that came on the hit was a big factor in the Steelers beating the Bengals. When Burfict got wind of Williams' comments, he didn't hold back in responded to Williams on Twitter.

Burfict's comments resulted in a full-on Twitter war between Burfict and Williams.

DeAngelo got the last word in, which means by the laws of Twitter, he won the Twitter fight. Although, Burfict did land one final shot against Steelers' fans.
Steelers fans is so salty lmao stop @ me— Vontaze Burfict (@King55Tez) April 6, 2016
There is no love lost between the Steelers and Bengals. We'll likely be in for more hatred and personal fouls when the two teams play this year.Back to the Pittsburgh Steelers Newsfeed
