Tell me if you’ve heard this story before...
Vontaze Burfict does something highly questionable vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Yeah, I know it sounds like I’m beating a dead horse here, but at the same time you have to recognize when plays like this happen.
In the first quarter, Burfict was blocked by Roosevelt Nix, and kicked him in the facemask as he was getting up. Check out the play below:

It should be noted this happened directly in front of the side judge, yet it wasn’t called.
After Burfict’s multiple suspensions, the NFL can, and likely will, review the play and see if it deserves any fine or suspension. There is no doubt what Burfict did, but is this worthy of another suspension or fine? Should Burfict’s behavior especially against the Steelers weigh in to the overall thought process of the powers that be in the league office?
