You may remember back in Week 1 of the NFL season when Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown attempted to hurdle Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning and it turned into more of a Karate kick, well Pat McAfee doesn't want the same treatment.

Brown goes Karate kid

Not long after the bizarre incident, Antonio Brown claimed that the punter Lanning had later joked about the attempted hurdle (Lanning denied the claim), the play however was called back for a foul but the punter next on the radar of Brown certainly doesn't want the same fate.

Pat McAfee who is highly regarded as the one of, if not the best punter in the league hopped on to social media to ask Brown politely to reconsider kicking him in the face if the opportunity presents itself.

McAfee tweeted alongside the image of Brown delivering the kick to Lanning asking: "Can you leave this particular move at home this weekend boss? @AntonioBrown84"

A day later the Indianapolis Colts punter once again returned to the social media site but this time employed the tactic of flattery to try and derail the future performance of the Steelers wide receiver.

He said: "Antonio Brown is so good at wide receiver.. They should really stop letting him return punts.. Like immediately.. Definitely b4 the weekend"

Be ready for the Steelers star

The Steelers are fresh off a 30-23 Monday night win over the Houston Texans, not only did they improve to 4-3 on the season which keeps their playoff hopes alive but they also extended a monday night home streak of 16 games.

Their lost loss on prime time television was in 1991 against the New York Giants, that's 23 years of monday night success.

Antonio Brown was in sensational form against the Texans which should be another reason that McAfee is worried about the match-up his Colts face on the weekend.

The wide receiver compiled 9 receptions for 90 yards but his most outstanding play came on a reverse where Brown threw a left-handed touchdown pass to Lance Moore for a 3 yard score.
