    Vp of officiating says it was a judgement call and bk judge didnt think it was on purpose.

    He also has said it goes back to original spot of fumble then half distance to goal line..so spotted at 1 yard line

    1st down at 1....more than likely lions get fg and tie to go to overtime..

    It actually would have been at the spot of the fumble. About a foot away from the end zone.

    Know idea how that official could think he didn't bat it.

    Either way though, Calvin Johnson needs to hang onto a ball. Fumbling late after finally having a good drive is something the Lions would do.

    It would just along with the non-holding calls all night when the 'great' Rusell Wilson would scramble.

    I imagine they feel that way. Apparently, the referee did not know the rule.

    It happened in the same endzone as the infamous "Fail Mary" (or "Inaccurate Reception", if you prefer), and once again the same team benefited from an official's gaffe. I promise to be every bit as outraged this time as I imagine Lion's fans were last time.

    For those who believe in karma, some of it will eventually come Seattle's way.

    For as much he was praised last night by Gruden, the offense was not good overall.
