Fans lament Detroit Lions' defensive issues, late clock management in OT loss to Seahawks

The Detroit Lions fell to 1-1 on the year after suffering a 37-31 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the season home opener.

It was a painful defeat for Detroit, who had high hopes after taking down the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1. In front of a packed Ford Field, the Lions could not overcome injuries or crucial mistakes down the stretch. The defense couldn't get a stop, like most of the game, in overtime as Geno Smith led Seattle down the field for a game-winning touchdown.

The Lions fell behind by 10 after a Jared Goff pick-six with eight minutes left in the game. Detroit showed resilience to climb out of that hole but had a chance to win and opted to play for overtime instead, making a last-second field goal. Seattle won the coin flip and never gave the Detroit offense a chance with the ball.

Here is what people on Twitter had to say about the Lions' overtime loss:

JEFF SEIDEL: Lions' home crowd was ready to blow, but team couldn't deliver spark to light fuse

The game-winning touchdown is under scrutiny on social media because it appears the referees could have missed a hold on Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson. The refs huddled but didn't call anything.

CARLOS MONARREZ: Lions showed grit, but I was a disappointed by lulls in crowd noise at Ford Field

But it's not all bad news for Lions fans. The rest of the division struggled too.
