Jeremy Hill's reaction to Vontaze Burfict's penalty is heartbreaking and nearly impossible to watch

This. Is. Devastating.

Jeremy Hill was mic'd up during the final minutes of the Bengals' Wild Card loss to the Steelers and his reaction to Vontaze Burfict's penalty on Antonio Brown and the subsequent penalty on Adam Jones is so gut-wrenchingly awful that you may not even want to watch. The penalties only occurred because after Burfict all but locked up a win for the Bengals with an interception on Landry Jones, Hill went and fumbled the ball on the first play the followed once the Bengals' offense took the field. Burfict would have been the hero and maybe even the MVP of the game if only that fumble by Hill didn't occur. Instead, we're sitting here recalling 90 seconds of a pure meltdown.

If you do watch the video, don't say I didn't warn you.

You can watch the full seven minute long mic'd up video here. But, if you don't want to relive the heartbreak, you can take my word that this makes it even worse than you remembered it.
