The Bengals went on to win, 26-19, for their first playoff victory in 31 years.

Author:Publish date:Jan 15, 2022The Bengals scored their first playoff win in over three decades on Saturday, stopping the Raiders at the goal line with 12 seconds to go to clinch the 26-19 victory. The play on everybody's mind after the game came in the first half, though, when an officiating error gave a big assist to Cincinnati's second touchdown.

On a key third-down play late in the second quarter, Joe Burrow scrambled to the sideline and threw a 10-yard score to Tyler Boyd to take a 20-6 lead. As the pass was mid-air, an official blew his whistle, which should have negated the touchdown.After the game, however, NFL senior vice president of officiating Walt Anderson spoke to a reporter and told him that the referees determined the whistle was blown after Chase caught the ball.

They put all their French fries and onion rings on a Referees's judgment but now they take back a premature whistle on an unreviewable stoppage. theMMQB bs… No it wasn't!! So, three mistakes: 1) Whistle blown by ref who thought QB stepped OB, 2) ruled a TD, despite existence of inadvertent whistle while ball was in air, 3) Whistle adjudged to have occurred after TD catch. This crew should be banned for remainder of playoffs.

The play they missed was the whistle for the time out, didn't hear it. If the play was blow dead, why wasn't a unsportsmanlike penalty called for tackling the QB well after the whistle? I don’t know what what they were watching but it hadn’t blown. theMMQB What about the “intent” of blowing the whistle. He was clearly going to do that before he actually blew it, probably before the ball reached the goal line. Isn’t that how the blown dead whistle is interpreted? Would’ve been a fg instead of a td too!

Sky Judge? People acting like this was last play of the game. Raiders had no chance to win after this. They got outplayed. Didn't stop burrow. Great season considering the drama this yr

Time to move on. Of course No Today's NFL: Refs made a terrible interpretation of a terrible call. Scales balanced on the timeout issue despite egregious incompetence and a 5 minute discussion. A”big assist”? That’s nonsense. The whistle had zero effect on the play. None. theMMQB Someone lied. Or more than one someone.

Not a chance.
