Vontaze Burfict kicks Steelers FB Roosevelt Nix in face
Vontaze Burfict wasted no time committing a dirty play against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers.
Just two plays into Sunday’s game between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, the Bengals linebacker was seen kicking Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix in the helmet after a play.

Burfict has earned a reputation for being a dirty player throughout his career, especially when playing the Steelers. He was suspended three games to start the season because of a hit he committed in the preseason this year. He’s been fined in the past for stepping on an opponent.
Burfict was also suspended to start last season for some dirty hits against the Steelers in the playoffs. The real surprise would have come if Burfict made it through the game without a dirty play.
