Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell: ‘That was one of the best stiff-arms of my life’

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell sent Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick flying with stiff-arm during their Week 7 matchup.

Bell caught a pass and had about a 15-yard head of steam when Kirkpatrick came up to try and make the tackle. Bell stuck him with a stiff-arm that put him face-first into the grass.

“That was one of the best stiff-arms of my life,” Bell said, via Penn Live’s Jacob Klinger. “I don’t know what happened or what came over me on that play, but yea that was probably one of the best stiff-arms of my life.”

The play ended for Bell with a 42-yard reception, and the Steelers finished the game with a 29-14 victory, moving to 5-2 on the season. Bell had his second big game in a row, rushing for 134 yards, and tallying 3 receptions for 58 yards.

With a second-consecutive loss for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers look to be the top team in the AFC through seven weeks. Their defense has been outstanding, and even though the offense has struggled, the playmakers have found their stride.

If rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster continues to progress, this team is going to be the favorite in the conference once the playoffs begin.
