The Lions get jobbed by the refs in Green Bay and social media is angry

Death. Taxes. The officials helping the Green Bay Packers in a home game. It’s the triumvirate of unavoidables.

It happened yet again at the end of the third quarter in Detroit’s visit to Lambeau Field on Thursday night. The Packers quite clearly did not the ball snapped in time before the quarter expired, but the officials let the play happen anyway. It resulted in a 44-yard gain that set up a touchdown a couple of plays later.

The play in question, with confirmation from longtime NFL referee and rules analyst Terry McAauly that the play should not have counted.

The reaction was, well, how you’d expect NFL fans everywhere but Green Bay to react to an obvious officiating assist to the home team.
