Watch: Vontaze Burfict delivers controversial hit to Antonio Brown

Vontaze Burfict

Controversial Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has injected himself into the team’s rivalry with the Pittsburgh Steelers once again.

Burfict came in late with what looked to be a helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown when the receiver already appeared wrapped up.

A reverse angle actually demonstrated that Burfict looked like he got more of teammate Jessie Bates with his helmet than he did Brown.

Both Brown and Bates actually left the game, though Brown returned very quickly and Bates came back a bit later.

Burfict has a long history against the Steelers, and Pittsburgh players have pretty clearly demonstrated that they don’t like him either. The hit and the manner of it certainly looked unnecessary and potentially dangerous, but no flag was thrown on the play.
