Colts punter asks Antonio Brown not to kick him in face

Pat McAfee doesn’t want the Spencer Lanning treatment.

On Monday, the Colts’ punter tweeted at Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, hoping to avoid the same cleat that Lanning ate in Week 1.

Lanning later joked about the meme-spawning incident, saying it was “pretty funny.” McAfee, seemingly, doesn’t share his sense of humor.

It’s not the first time McAfee has oh-so-kindly asked, either.

The Colts and Steelers will meet in Pittsburgh for a pivotal Week 8 showdown. We’ll see if Brown shows McAfee mercy. Or if McAfee even boots a returnable ball to Brown.
