Rules are rules. That was one shitty and far-fetched way to lose a football game, but the Lions specialize in precisely those kinds of losses.

I still think that play fell into the "not definitive" category and thus shouldn't have been reversed.

NFL cares more about making the correct call than protecting the feelings/ego of the referees. It was the right call, in college that doesn't get overturned.

I don't have a problem with the call but the 10 second run-off in that situation was killer. They'll have to put in a new exception to the rulebook
