    Bengals rookie linebacker Vontaze Burfict had 18 tackles against the Ravens last Sunday.

    On Tuesday, he credited Ravens running back Ray Rice for triggering the tackling spree, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The two wrestled with each other away from the ball on a play early in the game. Rice received a personal foul penalty. Burfict claimed Rice took a cheap shot.

    “After he did that little cheap shot, I felt like, ‘OK, let’s go,’â€￾ Burfict said. “It kind of had me on fire for the rest of the game. Just channeling my emotions in the right way.â€￾
