Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase was among those calling the refs out over their questionable officiating during Sunday night’s AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Chase was responsible for one of the best plays of the game, making an unbelievable catch amid double coverage on a fourth down throw from Joe Burrow in the fourth quarter.
The 2021 Offensive Rookie of the Year made six catches on the night, logging 75 yards. But he didn’t score any touchdowns as he was kept out of the end zone for the first time in these playoffs.

The Bengals will rue getting the short end of the stick as it pertains to the calls taking place during the contest. There was one particular decision that caused a lot of head-scratching, with the Chiefs getting a second opportunity on a third and nine as they were preparing to punt, because an official had tried to halt play.
The do-over resulted in a holding penalty that prompted a first down. The Bengals would receive the ball on a punt after forcing another third and nine. Chase has since taken to Twitter to air his confusion.
The Bengals had to go through three third and nine plays to get the ball back but, the fact is they did. And they had an opportunity to win the game.
