The entire sad city of Detroit is livid right now, as the Lions fell to the Cowboys, 24-20 in tonight’s Wild Card matchup in heartbreaking fashion. The key play of the game- a 3rd and one for the Lions under the 9 minute mark of the 4th quarter, was marred by the refs’ inexplicable decision to pick up the flag after announcing a pass interference penalty. Here is the video of the controversial play:
Clearly, this should have been stayed as pass interference. But it didn’t, and after a shanked punt, Dallas drove down the field for the game-winning touchdown. Brutal.
Needless to say, there are many people who were unhappy with the call. These people are expressing their distaste for the NFL in response to this tweet:

You gotta feel bad for Lions fans. Absolutely gut-wrenching way to lose a football game.
