The Steelers and Bengals are still beefing.

This was evidenced by a Twitter spat between Steelers tailback DeAngelo Williams and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, the latter notorious for his late penalty that helped swing last season’s playoff game in favor of Pittsburgh.

A since-deleted tweet provoked Burfict to lash out at Williams. It’s unclear exactly why it started, but the rest is kind of self-explanatory.

NoteSome explicit language involved.

That was a load, huh?
