Artie Burns apologizes for penalty that led to Browns touchdown

Artie Burns

Artie Burns apologized for losing his cool on a penalty he committed during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ tie with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Burns and Jarvis Landry got into a mini-fight on a rushing play by the Browns early in the third quarter with Pittsburgh up 7-0. Both players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, but Burns was called for a second penalty for taking off his helmet on the field.

The Browns got 15 yards and then had first down at their 31 thanks to the penalty. They ended up scoring a touchdown on the drive.

Following the game, which ended in a 21-21 tie, Burns apologized for losing his cool.

That penalty may not have had a major role in the team only tying, but it did not help. At least Burns is taking responsibility for the penalty.
