Pacman Jones: Brown ‘Was Faking’ After Hit


Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was at the epicenter of controversy on Saturday night in Cincinnati, and he has a different perspective on how a raucous fourth quarter went down than most. Speaking on The Dan Patrick Show on Monday morning, Jones defended Vontaze Burfict’s fourth quarter hit on Antonio Brown, which resulted in a concussion for Brown and 15-yard penalty on Burfict that helped put the Steelers in range for a game-winning field goal. Jones was also penalized on that play 15 yards for making contact with an official. Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter was on the field at the moment and allegedly incited Jones. “Nah, Antonio Brown was not hurt,” Jones said. “I know he was faking it. Go back and look at the play. If you go back in slow motion, you tell me Vontaze hit him in the head, or if his shoulder pads barely touched him.”
