Detroit Screwed by incompetent Referees

Detroit Screwed by incompetent Referees

More than 48 hours after officials in the Lions-Cowboys wild-card game ignited a firestorm with their overturned pass interference call, the controversy just won’t go away.

First, President Barack Obama took his turn sounding off on the officials, expressing his sympathy for fans in Detroit. Then came the day’s big bombshell.

According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, NFL officials admitted to the Detroit Lions on Tuesday that officials in that game — won 24-20 by the Cowboys — missed what the report called a “blatant hold” committed on Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh after the more controversial call.

According to the report, the hold happened on a fourth-and-6 with 6 minutes to play and Dallas trailing 20-17. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo connected with tight end Jason Witten for 21 yards to keep the drive alive, a drive which ended with an 8-yard TD pass from Romo to Terrance Williams for the game-winning score.
