Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is getting called out for a dangerous face mask play on Sunday afternoon.

The Steelers are getting crushed by the Bengals, 41-10, on Sunday afternoon.

Late in the contest, Claypool grabbed the facemask of Bengals defensive back Darius Phillips. The play appeared to be intentional - and it was dangerous.

Bengals fans are not happy.

"Chase Claypool is very immature, if you’re not making plays, put your head down and work man," one fan tweeted.

"What a sequence for Chase Claypool. Make a catch, run your mouth about said catch while losing 41-3, rip a guys helmet off away from the play for a 15yrd penalty, drop a pass," another fan added.

"Chase Claypool cares more about talking s--t than he does about football and being disciplined," one fan wrote.

The Steelers will drop to 5-5-1 on the season with Sunday's loss, while the Bengals will improve to 7-4.
