George Pickens receives fine for unsportsmanlike conduct penalty vs. Bengals

Pickens smoked the Bengals and let them know it.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals are getting prepared for a matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead this weekend, but some news came out today about their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend.

According to Tom Pelissero, George Pickens has received a fine from the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct during his touchdown in the third quarter. He high-stepped and pointed back at Jordan Battle as he crossed into the end-zone. No flag was thrown on the play.

Pickens went off against the Bengals' defense last week. He finished the game with four catches for 195 yards and two touchdowns.

Despite what you might think of it, the fine by the NFL totals $16,391.

Right in the middle of the AFC Wild Card race, if the Bengals can pull off two wins to end the season, they likely will play postseason football for the third straight season.

Kind of a wild fine for Pickens, but this seems to be the new norm by the league.

Now let’s go beat the Chiefs.

Who Dey!
