Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Flops After Nudge from Steve Smith, Draws Penalty

Thomas DuffyFeatured ColumnistNovember 27, 2016

Cincinnati Bengals villain linebacker Vontaze Burfict pulled a fast one Sunday.

After roughing up Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., Burfict blatantly flopped after the slightest bit of contact from the 37-year-old.

It worked.

Smith was flagged 15 yards for unnecessary roughness on the third-down play, but Justin Tucker still came on to nail a 52-yard field goal and give the Ravens a 10-0 lead.
