We saw one of the dirtiest plays of the season during Thursday night’s Steelers-Browns game.
In the third quarter, Anthony Walker Jr. of the Cleveland Browns suffered a knee injury and fell to the ground in pain.
After Walker fell to the ground, Steelers’ lineman Chukwuma Okorafor dove on Walker’s back.
Anthony Walker, Cleveland linebacker, is being carted off. He was blocked hard — and face-first to the ground — by Chuks Okorafor, after which Chuks came down on him with his full body weight. No bueno.

Fans were not happy Okorafo.
I’m a die hard Steelers fan. From birth till death. But what Chukwuma Okorafor just did right there is literally disgusting. Prayers up for Anthony Walker 🙏

Chukwuma Okorafor should have been thrown out of the game for that cheap shot! What a punk move!

Chukwuma Okorafor's wallet will be lighter next week.
