Steelers defeat Bengals on final drive of chippy wild-card game
Sunday January 10th, 2016

Bengals defensive back Adam “Pacman“ Jones went on Instagram to bash the officiating immediately following Sunday’s 18–16 playoffs loss to the Steelers.

At the end of a crazy finish, Jones drew a controversial personal foul at the end of the game, following a late hit by Vontaze Burfict on Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, that set up the game-winning field goal by Chris Boswell.

It was unclear exactly what happened as the referees dealt with the Burfict penalty, but Jones’s frustrations centered on the presence of Steelers coach Joey Porter on the field at the end of the game.

Jones’s comments are not fit for print, but you can watch his rant below.

Note: offensive language.

He later deleted the post. NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders claimed on television that he had texted Jones and told him to remove the video.

Minutes later, Jones posted a new video where he calmly addressed the officiating.


Omg !!
