After a season full of JuJu Smith-Schuster’s dancing and social media trolling, the Cleveland Browns got the last laugh on Sunday night.

The Browns threw Smith-Schuster’s TikTok dances right back in his face, both in the final seconds and in the locker room after their dominant 48-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in their wild-card matchup at Heinz Field.

Smith-Schuster has been dancing on the opposition’s midfield team logo throughout the season, and posting the videos to TikTok.

Naturally, the receiver’s routine hasn’t always gone over well with others in the league. Cincinnati Bengals safety Vonn Bell called him out before their matchup last month, and then delivered a brutal hit early in their contest.

So, considering how the Browns jumped out to a dominant 35-7 halftime lead and beat the Steelers for their first playoff win since the 1994 season on Sunday night, they felt the need to hit Smith-Schuster’s dances themselves.

They weren’t the only ones, either.

JuJu: ‘The Browns is the Browns’

Smith-Schuster came at the Browns ahead of Sunday’s game, too — something that didn’t age that well.

"I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year. “I think they’re nameless gray faces,” he said last week, via The Associated Press’ Tom Withers. “They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns."

Quarterback Baker Mayfield — who threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns — was quick to call him out in the tunnel on Sunday.

"I want to ask him the same question right now,” running back Kareem Hunt said, via Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We don't really have to talk about it, but I’d like to ask him the same question, what do you think now?”

Smith-Schuster addressed the comments after the game, too.

"I don't regret saying what I said,” he said, via ESPN’s Brooke Pryor. “They came out ... today wasn't our night. Hopefully the same Browns show up against the next opponent and do what they did tonight and have a great game."

Clearly, he ended up playing a pretty big role in the Browns’ win.
