Video: Browns’ Morgan Burnett reels in tip-drill INT on perfectly-played flea-flicker by the Steelers
Welcome to the Morgan Burnett revenge game. On Thursday, the Cleveland Browns strong safety is receiving the opportunity of playing against his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, who released him after he was reportedly disgruntled with his role.
Burnett is not letting a perfect revenge opportunity slip through his hands. In the second quarter of the divisional tilt, the Browns safety hauled in an interception on quarterback Mason Rudolph. Watch below.

Though Burnett was the one to reel in the tip-drill interception, he doesn’t deserve all the credit for the play. Pro Bowl cornerback Denzel Ward perfectly read the Steelers’ flea-flicker call, made a play on the ball and ultimately allowed his back-end help to make a play. Browns interception. Burnett then returned it for 42 yards.
Unfortunately for Browns faithful, Cleveland was unable to turn the interception into points. Shortly after the takeaway, rookie kicker Austin Seibert missed a field goal kick for the first time of his career.
