Cincinnati Bengals’ LB Vontaze Burfict was ejected from Sunday game against the Bills for contacting an official. The penalty came on the play immediately after Burfict was called for another unsportsmanlike flag on the play before.
Though NBC camera’s failed to catch exactly what Burfict did to the official to get ejected, video has surfaced showing the infraction.
As an official was trying to hold Burfict back, his arm seemingly pushed the referee’s arm out of the way.

It’s fair to question if the player who did this was not Burfict if he would have been ejected, but with the linebackers’s resume, it likely factored in.
