Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes was so upset at an official following his team's 21-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins that he confronted him in the tunnels of Hard Rock Stadium and yelled "I'll catch you" as he was being directed away.

Jon Scott of Spectrum News Buffalo shared video of the incident (warning: NSFW language):

Jerry Hughes runs off field and straight to officials, getting in the face of one in particular. Clearly something said that set Hughes off. #Bills https://t.co/4uuqHL9mLM

Mike Rodak of ESPN noted Hughes said the official called him a "b---h." Rodak also reported the NFL will investigate the video.

After the incident, Hughes denied confronting the official, adding he couldn't recall if the official called him a "b---h," per Rodak

"Who did? I did what?" asked Hughes. "What did I say? If I did go up to the official, what did I say?"

Per Rodak, "when told there was video of the confrontation, the ninth-year player repeated to reporters, 'I would love to see the video.'"

There may have been some leftover frustration as well considering the loss dropped the Bills to 4-8. Hughes had just one tackle on the afternoon.
