Bengals Burfict, Steelers RB go back and forth on Twitter

Four months later, the acrimony between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers lives on.

Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams lit the fuse again Wednesday when he told there was "no doubt" they could have made a run at Super Bowl 50 with a healthy Antonio Brown.

Brown, the Steelers' standout wide receiver, was knocked out of the Steelers' 18-16 wild-card playoff win over the Bengals in January by linebacker Vontaze Burfict on a late hit to the head. Brown missed the divisional round playoff game the following week against the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos.

Burfict, who was suspended by the NFL for the first three games of next season because of the hit, responded to Williams on Twitter. And away they went.
