Vontaze Burfict flips off fans at Bengals vs Bills

It's safe to say Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontae Burfict was rather annoyed with the fans at Paul Brown Stadium when his team played against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The 26-year-old had a brilliant game against the AFC East side, tallying up 13 total tackles and a sack, but due to the ineffectiveness of the offense without wide receiver A.J. Green, the Bengals lost to the Bills 16-12.

Burfict took out his frustrations with the way the game was going on the crowd during the fourth quarter, which is sure to result in a nice fine coming his way in the mail over the next few days.

On a third-and-four with around six minutes left in the game, the Pro Bowl linebacker tackled Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor to make it fourth down, giving the Bengals a way back into the contest.

After leaving the field and going towards the bench, Burfict flipped not one, but two birds towards the fans in attendance, showing his anger towards them and the game taking place. Cincinnati was unable to capitalise on his play and they moved to a 3-6-1 record.

It's unclear who the controversial player was aiming the insult towards, but according to some tweets, the reason behind him flipping the birds was because some Bills fans had thrown beer at him.

Either way, Burfict better look forward to a nice little fine coming his way. The Bengals will be hoping he doesn't pull any stunts like this next week in a must-win game against their AFC North division rivals the Baltimore Ravens.
