Report: Bengals Burfict could face suspension

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is facing a suspension from the NFL for his hit on Antonio Brown in the final minute of Saturday's 18-16 wild-card playoff loss vs. the Steelers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday on Facebook.

Burfict was flagged for a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty for the headshot on Brown.

A subsequent 15-yard personal foul on the Bengals' Adam Jones moved the Steelers into field-goal range for Chris Boswell's 35-yard game-winning field goal with 14 seconds left.

With the Bengals season complete, any suspension would be enforced in the next season.
