Steelers coach pushes Bengals defender, draws 15-yard flag

BY Ross Jones • January 9, 2016

Cincinnati Bengals safety Reggie Nelson sent Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jordan Todman into the visitor's sideline in the first quarter of Saturday night's AFC Wild Card game.

Longtime offensive line coach and Hall of Famer Mike Munchak grabbed Nelson and shoved Nelson off of him as the two became tangled on the sideline. Despite Nelson pushing him back, the 55-year old was the only one flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Head coach Mike Tomlin and Munchak had a discussion with the referees during a TV timeout. 

Munchak has a fiery demeanor playing the the NFL for 11 years and making nine Pro Bowls.

The intensity level is sky high for both AFC North teams and it appears the coaches are no exception.
