Tensions typically are high when AFC North rivals meet, but what appeared to happen in Week 11 takes tempers to a new level.

Ravens offensive lineman Marshal Yanda appeared to spit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict during Sunday's game in Baltimore.

The incident took place in the fourth quarter after Burfict tackled Ravens running back Alex Collins. Video appeared to show Yanda spitting as Burfict was on the ground after the play.

Burfict had no immediate reaction, and the Ravens have since denied Yanda's actions.

You be the judge.

The Ravens escaped with a 24-21 win as first-round pick Lamar Jackson made what coach John Harbaugh called a "spectacular" NFL debut in place of injured veteran quarterback Joe Flacco.
