Steelers star blasts Freddie Kitchens for wearing ‘Pittsburgh started it’ shirt

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers exacted revenge against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, winning by the score of 20-13.

This victory pushed Pittsburgh to 7-5 on the season. It also pretty much dropped the now 5-7 Browns from playoff contention.

Remember, this was a rematch of that now infamous Thursday night game back in Week 11 that saw a record number of suspensions and fines handed out after Myles Garrett hit Mason Rudolph in the head with his helmet.

In the lead up to the game, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was seen wearing a “Pittsburgh started it” t-shirt.

This apparently did not sit well with Pro Bowl guard David DeCastro, who absolutely put Kitchens on blast after the Steelers’ win on Sunday.

DeCastro is not wrong here. It was certainly bulletin board material for the Steelers.

Whether that played a role in Pittsburgh pretty much knocking its division rivals out of playoff contention on Sunday remains to be seen. But it sure was noticed by those in Pittsburgh.
