Vonn Bell follows through on promise, levels JuJu Smith-Schuster to force fumble
Vonn Bell had a message for JuJu Smith-Schuster ahead of Monday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In the safety of the Cincinnati Bengals, Smith-Schuster danced on opponents' field logos in the prep games - a practice the Steelers recipient shared with his Tik Tok supporters again on Monday.
Bell isn't a fan of the routine.
"It's kind of disrespectful at the end of the day," Bell told reporters at a video conference earlier this week. "But they're up right now, so you can't really say anything right now. We just have to go out there, between the lines, go out there and hit him and let him know where he stands."
He had an opportunity to follow up on the news in the first quarter on Monday evening. And he delivered.

Bell's message comes through loud and clear
Ben Roethlisberger hit Smith-Schuster with a third pass on an intersection route near midfield. Bell was waiting for him. As soon as Smith-Schuster caught the ball, it turned up where it was hit by Bell.
Bell immediately converted the Steelers receiver and let the soccer ball fly over the field. Officials initially ruled the game an incomplete pass. The Bengals challenged, and officials rightly ruled, that Smith-Schuster caught the ball and turned the field up.
The call was changed to a fumble and the Bengals converted it into points with a touchdown from Giovani Bernard seven games later to create a 10-0 lead over the division-leading Steelers. The piece set the tone for Cincinnati's 27:17 surprise against its division rival.
The Bengals' Twitter account seemed particularly happy about Smith-Schuster's death:
It all adds up to the kind of game that could force Smith-Schuster to think twice about his further routine before the game.
