National Football League fines Bengals' Burfict $112000 for hits

NFL issues hefty fine to Vontaze Burfict for unnecessary roughness hits vs. Steelers

The NFL hit Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with more than $100,000 in fines for his actions during a Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, constituting the biggest non-suspension fine of his career.

After pounding Antonio Brown and James Conner last Sunday, as well as pointing at and threatening JuJu Smith-Schuster, Burfict spent his return to the National Football League accruing more fine dollars. The Steelers are not innocent of dirty hits over the years but Burfict's body of work, just against Pittsburgh is beyond damming.

Later in the third quarter, it looked like Burfict went for James Conner's head with his own head.

The decision granted the family an additional week to find a healthcare facility that would care for the girl. Payton's parents' lawyer, Justin Moore, said she had not been taken off life support.

Keep in mind, both of the plays the league office considered egregious, the officials on the field didn't even think warranted a flag. Brown was down on the turf for a few seconds and was evaluated by the team on the sideline before re-entering the game.

He also has been suspended twice for a total of six games, including a three-game ban for a hit on Brown during a 2016 playoff game.

Right tackle Marcus Gilbert also took issue with Burfict's behavior, calling it "pathetic" "sad", and telling reporters "hopefully one of these days (Burfict) grows up". The Bengals are 4-2 in 2018, tied with the Ravens for first place in the AFC North. Kickoff is slated for 8:20 p.m. ET.
