The referees appeared to miss a blatant penalty on the Kansas City Chiefs prior to Joe Burrow's interception on Sunday afternoon.

With the Chiefs and the Bengals tied up, 21-21, Burrow and the Bengals offense had the ball, looking to go on a game-leading drive.

Unfortunately for Cincinnati, the drive ended early, with Burrow throwing an interception near the sideline. Should the play have counted, though?

Video appears to show the Chiefs' defensive line jumping into the neutral zone prior to the snap by the Bengals quarterback.

We would need to see the sideline video to know for sure, but that really looks like the referees missed a neutral zone infraction.

Of course, there have been missed calls on both sides on Sunday, but this could be one that fans talk about for a while.

A ticket to the Super Bowl is on the line.

The fourth quarter can be seen on CBS.
