Pat McAfee's Thanksgiving plea to Antonio Brown: No kicks to the face

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts punter Pat McAfee is hoping to be able to enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers with his family without having any pain in his face.

McAfee took to Twitter on Tuesday and jokingly asked Pittsburgh Steelers receiver and returner Antonio Brown not to put his foot in McAfee's face mask while returning punts during Thursday’s game.

Brown famously jumped and kicked Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning in the facemask on a return when Lanning tried to tackle him in a game in 2014.

The play earned Brown an $8,200 fine for "unnecessary roughness for kicking the defender in the head."

Brown responded Tuesday with some advice for McAfee.
