One of the biggest matchups heading into Super Bowl 56 was Los Angeles Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey vs. Cincinnati Bengals rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase.

But the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year made one big catch on the former Florida State defensive back in the first half. And shortly after halftime, another Bengals wideout, Tee Higgins, torched Ramsey for a 75-yard touchdown to give Cincinnati the lead.

But did Higgins have an illegal helping hand? Replays showed the receiver had his hand inside Ramsey's facemask, which could have resulted in a penalty and a negation of the touchdown.

Ramsey certainly thought so. Those following the Super Bowl on Twitter had varying thoughts on the situation, with some just happy to laugh at the expressive Ram.
