NFL fans want a referee to be suspended for a ridiculous unnecessary roughness penalty during the final minutes of the New York Jets vs. Cincinnati Bengals game.
The Jets beat the Bengals, 34-31, on Sunday afternoon. Led by quarterback Mike White, New York pulled off an upset against Cincinnati at MetLife Stadium.
Cincinnati was on the receiving end of a truly terrible call late in the game, though.
Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton was called for unnecessary roughness for his hit on a Jets running back.
Some are calling for the referee who called the penalty to face a punishment from the league.
"Roughing call on Mike Hilton should get that official suspended," Nick Kostos tweeted. "You should not be able to make a game and potentially season-altering call like that with no repercussions. That is just a pathetic call."
The Bengals didn't lose on Sunday because of that call, but it certainly did not help.
Cincinnati fell to 5-3 on the season with the surprising loss, while New York improved to 2-5 on the year with the upset win.
It'll be interesting to see if the NFL addresses the controversial penalty this week.
