The Bengals may be awful, but no fanbase is excited to play them for one simple reason: Vontaze Burfict.
Every week you can count on fans breaking out their pitchforks because Burfict took a cheap shot on one of their players. Dude really can’t help himself from going after knees.
However! Burfict changed things up today by tricking referees with an Oscar-worthy flop after being on the receiving end of a Steve Smith “headbutt:”

An infuriating move, but at least he didn’t try to tear ACLs (yet).
