Vontaze Burfict Taunts Titans Fans After Being Ejected For Touching Ref

However, the Bengals managed to string something together when it mattered most on Sunday afternoon against the Tennessee Titans.

A few plays earlier, Burfict was flagged for a late hit out of bounds on Titans running back DeMarco Murray.

While the contact with the official wasn't particularly egregious, the Titans seemed to provoke Burfict, who has a reputation for hits that have been deemed dirty.

A "Hail Mary" pass by the Bengals fell incomplete on the final play of the game.

It's the longest winning streak for the Titans (6-3) since winning five straight in 2009, and it's their best start to a season since 2008 when the Titans last reached the playoffs as the AFC's No. 1 seed.

According to the National Football League rulebook, "Unnecessary physical contact with a game official", is an unsportsmanlike penalty and "may result in disqualification and also will include discipline by the Commissioner".

Burfict taunted fans and made a "money" sign while walking off the field.

Brian Orakpo sacked Dalton, and linebacker Derrick Morgan dove on the loose ball at the Cincinnati 27-yard line. Succop connected from 44 yards for a 17-13 halftime lead.
