Ranking All 16 College Football Playoff Teams From 2014-2017

  Ranking All 16 College Football Playoff Teams From 2014-2017 In the four years of the College Football Playoff, how do the 16 teams in the era stack up? How would they be ranked by the committee?There's obviously a reason why some teams are ranked where they were in a given season, but the criteria has changed a wee bit here and there - the CFP really likes the four best teams belief - so there's some adjusting to do.

Juju Smith - Schuster is probably going to get ejected after tonight’s Bengals-Steelers game. In the fourth quarter of the game, Smith - Schuster delivered a vicious blindside block on notorious Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict .

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has been the subject of much criticism regarding the illegal blindside block he put on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in Monday’s game.

The incident in question happened in the fourth quarter of the AFC North matchup, when Smith-Schuster attempted to block for Le’Veon Bell, who was attempting to stretch a short pass into a sizeable gain to move the chains.

Bell was met by Burfict, who eyed the Steelers running back as he prepared to make contact with him. Smith-Schuster, however, came flying in with a blindside block, catching Burfict off guard and sending him to the turf. On top of that, Smith-Schuster appeared to taunt Burfict by standing over him afterward, which resulted in him getting penalized for both unnecessary roughness and taunting.

JuJu Smith - Schuster suspension upheld. Posted by Mike Florio on December 5, 2017, 8:07 PM EDT. I apologize for standing over him and that isn’t me. Praying he gets better.” Taunting, yes. Again, barely. Illegal blindside block , no. And Burfict was well enough to suddenly sit up and shove

Burfict, however, remained down on the field for awhile and was eventually carted off.

Smith-Schuster did apologize for taunting Burfict after the game, and agreed that the block was illegal (via Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). He also claimed that he didn’t know who it was, directly addressing those who believed he was targeting Burfict.

Furthermore, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that Smith-Schuster should not have stood over Burfict to taunt him after the game.

The Bengals, however, were a bit more direct in how they felt about the illegal block. Burfict himself was said to be “livid” afterward, and teammate Will Jackson said the officials should’ve ejected Smith-Schuster from the game (via Jay Morrison of Cox Media Group). The Bengals cornerback also added that if Burfict been the player to deliver the hit, he would’ve been ejected for it, in speaking to the media after the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith - Schuster 's one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday evening. The suspension was levied for a blindside block Smith - Schuster unleashed on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in Monday's 23-20 Steelers' win.

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith - Schuster injured Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with an illegal block on Monday night, then added insult to injury by taunting Burfict as he lay motionless on the field. I apologize for that and with that being said, I hope he gets better.”

Unfortunately, the cheap shot on Burfict wasn’t the only one in the divisional matchup between these two rivals, which featured a number of brutal hits. Bengals safety George Iloka put a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on Antonio Brown after he hauled in a touchdown catch to tie the game at 20-20.

It will be interesting to see how the league views these hits, and if any players are suspended as a result.
