Ahead of Saturday’s game, Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster gave the Cleveland team some bulletin board material when he trash-talked the Browns, according to the outlet.
“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year,” JuJu said, according to Associated Press’ Tom Withers.
“I think they’re nameless gray faces,” he added. “They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns.”
After the Browns beat the Steelers’ and advanced in the NFL Playofffs, Smith-Schuster said he didn’t “regret saying” what he said, via ESPN’s Brooke Pryor.
“They came out … today wasn’t our night,” he added. “Hopefully the same Browns show up against the next opponent and do what they did tonight and have a great game.”
