The New England Patriots routed the Pittsburgh Steelers 36-17 on Sunday en route to their NFL-record ninth Super Bowl appearance.
As the Steelers exited the field after the AFC Championship Game, one jubilant Patriots fan reminded Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown about the infamous video he broadcast on Facebook after the divisional-round playoff win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brown’s video, in which he captured Steelers coach Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots a vulgar name, violated team and NFL rules on social media use. He’s awaiting punishment from Tomlin, although the receiver’s reported six-figure Facebook deal might soften that slow.
Brown caught seven passes for 77 yards against the Patriots, but he was held out of the end zone as the Steelers’ offense had trouble finishing drives.
