The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals reignited their rivalry Sunday, and Vontaze Burfict was up to his old tricks
The Cincinnati Bengals linebacker continued to play a questionable style of football during the AFC North rivals’ matchup, as he kicked Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix as a play ended in Pittsburgh’s eventual win.
Burfict, who was playing in just his third game of the season after serving a three-game suspension stemming from another dirty hit, could be facing even more supplemental discipline from this incident. Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell thinks Burfict shouldn’t be allowed to earn a paycheck in the NFL anymore.
Bell criticized Burfict via Twitter with a couple of tweets, including one message saying the NFL should be done with Burfict.
Burfict also missed the first three games of the 2016 season, stemming from a dirty hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in a 2015 playoff game. To say he’s a repeat offender is just a slight understatement.
