The Detroit Lions held the reigning Super Bowl champs to 6 field goals. However six of those points came from two deep pass interference calls. Both were very questionable. At the very least the first one was for sure not PI. Then with what is absolutely pass interference in the end zone when Stafford had a for sureTD. His Tight End was hand cuff by Webb of the Ravens. There was no flag. Final score Ravens 18 over Lions 16. The good news is the Ravens could not put the ball in the end zone. The bad news. They had the officials to help out their sputtering offense. The lions Megatron was anything but. Reminded me of the recent play of AJ Green. So you could argue that the Lions should have overcame the lopsided calls from the officials. Seems if you play the so called pedigree teams like the Steelers or Ravens, you also have to overcome the refs. You can argue that the Lions should have overcame and played better. Why the one sided calls? So usually calls will work themselves out ? I don't think so. Maybe over the entire year? This is all wrong the officials helped the Ravens get that win. If they had been playing the Patriots or the Packers, I guarantee you that the calls by the officials would have been on point. The Lions just like the Bengals get no respect nationally. If you think not then I have some amazing ocean front property right here in Ohio that I will give you a hell of a deal on. To get back on point the officials calls on the field demonstrate this. It's not fair, and until teams can overcome the calls and make it to the playoffs, and once there win and show that they belong. Well then this is what you are going to get in the NFL.
For anyone on this planet to say that no official saw the PI in the end zone for this game? Really? For anyone on this planet to say that not one of the officials saw the Illegal hit on Punter Kevin Huber ? Really ? Maybe they should centralize the replay and review every play. I for one don't want to see that happen. What I want is clear fair enforcement of the rules. Period!
