Over 26,000 people have signed a petition urging an investigation into the Bengals wild card game against the Steelers.

The petition targets the NFL and does not specify the type of investigation it’s seeking.  

It was started by Jamaal Spivey on thepetitionsite.com.

“I know I just sound like a bitter fan and admittedly I am. But any real football fan has to admit there was a lot of shadiness surrounding this game,” the petition reads.

Spivey brings up Ryan Shazier's helmet-to-helmet hit on Giovani Bernard, Vontaze Burfict's helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and the "unsportsmanlike like conduct" call involving Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter who was on the field after Brown was hit. 

The two penalties help set up a game-winning field goal by Steelers kicker Chris Boswell.

When asked about the petition Monday, head coach Marvin Lewis said he had no knowledge of it.
