You can't get away with this one, Eric. In what's been a trying year for the troubled DB, beginning later than usual due to some neglect from the league, Reid was penalized and summarily ejected for smashing Ben Roethlisberger following a long rush.
Yes, in the modern NFL, that'll get you eliminated.
The league office really had no choice but to act here, and though Reid dapped Big Ben up in the aftermath, you have to do a better job of avoiding the head in 2018. He tried to leap around him (kind of) but made more than enough contact to the head.

The Steelers scored a few plays later on an easy strike to Jesse James. Clinical.
