INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee has a simple request for Thanksgiving.

Specifically, he’s hoping to avoid getting kicked in the face by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and returner Antonio Brown.

McAfee tweeted at Brown Tuesday, posting a gif of an infamous play from two years ago in which Brown tried to hurdle Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning and ended up kicking him in the face.

“My mom’s gonna be there,” McAfee wrote. “Once again, none of this.. please.. thanks in advance.”

Brown, obviously a good sport, advised McAfee to simply kick the ball out of bounds to avoid a return and the possibility of repeating Lanning’s humiliation.

“You should just kick it out of bounds brother!” Brown wrote. “Kidding, happy Thanksgiving, Momma McAfee!”

McAfee responded with, “You’re the man. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.”

We expect things to be a little less chipper between the two on Thanksgiving night, when the Colts host the Steelers at Lucas Oil Stadium for a special edition of Thursday Night Football.

Then again, as Jim Ayello from our newsgathering partners at the IndyStar points out, perhaps Brown should fear McAfee, who’s been known to lower the boom on returners who have the audacity to get past the coverage team:
