The Lions were ROBBED last night.
Detroit lost another pivotal game due to poor officiating.
The situation: Johnson was running toward the end zone when Seattle safety Kam Chancellor knocked the ball out of his hands just before he crossed the goal line. That was a strong play, but Seahawks’ linebacker K.J. Wright saw the ball in the end zone and intentionally knocked it out of bounds, turning the play into a touchback.
The call was WAY off and no one stepped up to fix it. Just horrible.
What should have happened: NFL officiating czar Dean Blandino said the Lions should have maintained possession at the spot of the fumble instead of it being turned over to Seattle. With less than two minutes left, a potential Lions touchdown could have given them the upset. Instead, Seattle got the ball and iced the game, sending Detroit to 0-4.
Instead, the Lions walk out of there without a field goal or touchdown and the Seahawks ice the game.
Jesus Christ these guys can't catch a break.
