Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has earned a reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the National Football League and Sunday's matchup with the Tennessee Titans won't do much to change that fact. As referees separated Burfict and several Titans players, Burfict pushed a referee off of him.

Burfict got tossed after he made contact with an official in an incident that, frankly, doesn't look like much.

He missed the first three games of the 2017 season due to repeated violations of the NFL's player safety rules. Receiver A.J. Green was sent to the locker room following an altercation with Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey last week.
