It was reported yesterday that the NFL will be reviewing the low hit Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict put on Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett during Sunday’s game, and today brings news that the league is looking at another incident involving Burfict from that very same game.
Yesterday was only Vontaze Burfict’s third game of the season—the Bengals LB missed the first three with a suspension for, functionally, all the dirty shit he’s done—and he’s already in fine form.
