What happens when the winners say the Lions got jobbed. There’s a ton of a Packers fans saying this.
Could we have played better ball?..sure… but every game and every team makes mistakes. The goal is to make the fewest mistakes. That includes the refs. The poor officiating is ruining the game and the league could easily fix it. Ask yourself why don’t they?
I think the Lions had a few calls go their way. But the Packers had a lot of calls go their way and even more no calls. Their can’t be two sets of rules where one team has an advantage because people will eventually stop watching.
The bottom line is the Lions never have to beat just the Packers. They have to beat the refs and the Packers.
While the Packers just have to play well enough to keep it close and the refs will bail them out if they can’t accomplish it on their own.
