Vontaze Burfict, Pacman Jones commit two personal fouls to give Steelers game-winner

SB Nation 2016 NFL Playoff Guide

Vontaze Burfict and Adam 'Pacman' Jones cost the Cincinnati Bengals a playoff win with two of the worst penalties one may ever see in a big moment. With the Pittsburgh Steelers driving towards field goal range late in Saturday's Wild Card game, Burfict laid a hit that clearly targeted the head of Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

From a moral standpoint, Burfict's hit was disgusting.

Then, ON THE NEXT PLAY, Jones committed another personal foul, perhaps for arguing with referees though it's unclear what exactly happened from the broadcast.

Jones went on an expletive-laced rant against the referees on Instagram after the game.

The penalties moved the Steelers from the 47 to the 17-yard line, giving them an easy shot at a game-winning field goal -- a 35-yarder. Chris Boswell hit it easily and the Steelers advanced, 18-16, after one of the craziest endings ever.
