The Cincinnati Bengals fell to division rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers in a wildcard matchup that was a 18-16 thriller coming down to the final seconds. The pivotal moment in the game came as Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was flagged for a late hit on Steelers wide out Antonio Brown. Following the hit, there seemed to be some hoopla going on between players on both teams and the referees as Brown laid on the field.
Steelers linebacker coach and former All-Pro player Joey Porter made his way onto the field during the ruckus and exchanged words with Bengals defensive back Adam “Pac Man” Jones. The referees then flagged Jones for a personal foul, therefore advancing the Steelers some extra yards, allowing kicker Chris Boswell to hit the game winning field goal.
Seemingly having the win, the call altered the outcome of the game and many Bengals players and fans were visibly distraught by the playoff loss. Jones immediately took to his Instagram account following the game (as he has been known to do), and let off a profane rant toward the referees.

He later took down the video, at the behest of NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders, who says he texted Jones and told him to remove the clip. The DB later posted another video to his Instagram chastising the referees but in a much less vulgar tone.
