Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver didn't like a call made by the refs, so he responded by flipping them the bird. Unfortunately for him, the cameras caught him doing it.
Update: Monday, Oct. 28 at 4:00 p.m. ET
Tarver has released a statement:

More Tarver: “I regret drawing attention away from the Raiders players and what they accomplished.” For this: http://t.co/5OvvYn2RqW— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 28, 2013
ESPN's Adam Schefter provides another update:
Raiders, not NFL, are expected to impose discipline on defensive coordinator Jason Tarver for his obscene gesture during Sunday's win.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 28, 2013
-- End of Update --
The Raiders had a 21-3 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers midway through the third quarter, but Tarver was still fired up about the flag.
