Thankfully, Baldwin saw the funny side of things after the game and it seems the gesture towards his OC was made in fun, rather than anything serious.

“We’re in the f****** red zone, and you want me to throw the ball?” Baldwin said after the game with a laugh. “Throw me the ball…"

“It’s more funny than it is anything,” Baldwin added, via ESPN. “[Bevell] knows that when we get in the red zone, I want the ball thrown to me. I want to score touchdowns. And so, it’s like in that situation, him flipping the bird to me because now he’s got me throwing the ball to somebody else.”
