Michael Bennett exploded after a question from a reporter on Saturday.

Matt Ryan carved up the Seahawks defense to the tune of 338 yards and three touchdowns. The Seattle pass-rush, typically one of the league's best, was unable to get to Ryan outside of three sacks.

After the game ended, a reporter started a line of questioning directed at Seahawks' defensive lineman Michael Bennett. According to the Seattle Times, Bill Wixey of Q13 started the following question, “You weren’t able to get as much pressure on him as you were…”

Then, Bennett went off:

“We got a lot of pressure,” Bennett said. “He threw the ball really fast. There was some busted stuff going on so obviously you don’t know football. He threw the ball pretty fast. He did his thing. We rushed as good as we could. Don’t point and say we didn’t do what we needed to do, OK? Don’t do that.

“Get out of my face now. Don’t tell me I didn’t do my job (expletive). OK, exactly. Get the (expletive) out of my face. Like I said, get out of my face. Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me. I just put my heart on the (expletive) field. Don’t (expletive) play with me. Get the (expletive) out of my face then. Try me again, see what happens. I ain’t one of these (expletive) out here. Don’t try to tell me what I didn’t do (expletive).”

Bennet is known for being somewhat of a hot head, but a room full of reporters probably isn't the best place to cross the line.
