Vontaze Burfict flop baits Steve Smith into penalty


Vontaze Burfict has made a grave error in judgment.

The Cincinnati Bengals linebacker fooled an official into calling an unnecessary roughness penalty on Steve Smith with an audacious flop during the first half of the Ravens' 19-14 victory.

Oscar season is over. Hand over the statue.

I'd almost give Burfict credit for this if not for the fact that he tries to permanently disable a contemporary every other week. Anyway, Steve Smith assuredly declared vengeance immediately after this encounter and soon we're not going to see Vontaze Burfict anymore.

Bye, Vontaze Burfict. You had a pretty good life. It's over now.
