ALAMEDA Joe Mixon Jersey , Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed linebacker Vontaze Burfict.The move Tuesday puts Burfict on a new team one day after he was released by the Cincinnati Bengals, where he spent his first seven seasons. During his time with Cincinnati, Burfict was repeatedly suspended by the NFL for violent hits and for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancers.One of Burfict’s most infamous hits was to the head of wide receiver Antonio Brown late in a playoff game in the 2015 season that helped the Steelers rally for an 18-16 win. Burfict and Brown will now be teammates after the former Pittsburgh star was traded to Oakland.Burfict will be reunited with Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther Clark Harris Jersey , who was in charge of the Bengals defense from 2014-17.During his career in Cincinnati, Burfict had 8½ sacks and five interceptions. He made the Pro Bowl in 2013. The Steelers didn’t look good against the Bengals on Sunday, but they needed a win more than they needed to look pretty.They got that win when kicker Matt McCrane made his third field goal of the day with two minutes left in the game. The kick made the score 16-13 and the Steelers defense came up with the stop they needed to end the season with a 9-6-1 record.Winning alone wasn’t enough to send the Steelers to the playoffs as they needed either a Ravens loss to the Browns or a tie in Sunday night’s game between the Titans and Colts to push them to the postseason. Players remained in a packed Heinz Field to watch the final minutes of the game in Baltimore and root for their divisional rivals from Cleveland.Their wish did not come true. The Ravens held on and the Steelers are now clinging to the slimmest of playoff threads.The Steelers were shut out for the entire first half until McCrane Josh Malone Jersey , who was signed this week when Chris Boswell went on injured reserve, hit a field goal at the whistle to put them in the locker room down 10-3. Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception that Shaun Williams took back for the Bengals’ only touchdown of the game, but bounced back to hit JuJu Smith-Schuster for a touchdown in the second half.Roethlisberger went over 5 Alex Erickson Jersey ,000 yards for the season while going 31-of-45 for 287 yards. The Steelers offense appeared to miss wide receiver Antonio Brown, who sat with a knee injury, but they were able to just enough to back up an outstanding defensive performance.It wasn’t enough William Jackson Jersey , though, and four losses in the five previous games proved to be too much for the Steelers to overcome.
