There weren’t many positives to take from the Cincinnati Bengals‘ disappointing 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one.

One fun thing, however, that came from the loss was an instantly iconic photo of Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase flipping off Steelers defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Chase was asked about the photo on Wednesday in the Bengals’ locker room.

And he had a great reaction.

The former LSU star told reporters it wasn’t the first time he’s flipped off an opponent, this was just the first time he’s been caught.

Chase also sheepishly said to reporters “I guess yall saw that”.

Yes, Chase. We all saw it. Everyone.

I agree with Chase there. Hopefully, folks don’t spin this into something more than it needs to be. It was just a competitor in the moment. It happens…often.
