AFC Notes: Bengals, Bills, Broncos, Jaguars

Bengals

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict says that NFL officials are trying to provoke him, but he needs to react better than he has in the past.

“The refs, they come up to me, talking to me disrespectfully, wanting me to curse back at them, but me cursing back at them isn’t going to help me,” Burfict said, via ESPN.com. “I’m not going to get a flag in my favor next time around, but that’s the way they handle business, I guess. I told [Lewis] I’m just going to try to stay out of the refs’ way.”

Last week, Burfict was ejected for contact with referee Jeff Bergman. However, Burfict says he didn’t do anything worthy of being booted from the game.

“I knew I didn’t do anything bad,” Burfict said. “Obviously, you are not supposed to touch the officials, but I didn’t think I touched him maliciously at all. I pretty much said, ‘Excuse me.‘”
