Antonie Winfield Jr. got some sweet revenge in Super Bowl LV.
During the Chiefs Week 12 victory over the Buccaneers, Tyreek Hill went off for 269 receiving yards and three touchdowns. At the end of a 75-yard touchdown in that game, Hill taunted rookie safety Antonie Winfield Jr. by throwing up a peace sign and then doing a back flip into the end zone during his 44-yard touchdown.
In Sunday’s Super Bowl LV, Hill made just seven catches for 73 yards and most of them came when the game was out of reach. On a fourth-down incompletion play that was intended for Hill, Winfield walked up to Hill and flashed the peace sign in the receiver’s face — get some sweet, sweet revenge.
Winfield Jr. was flagged for taunting, but he says it was so worth it:
Winfield finished the game with six tackles, an interception and two pass breakups.
