      I think the one score the Lions turned into a TD... Wasn't a score. The closest ref said not a touchdown, Packers ball... Overturned by the ref 20 yards away.
      No one thinks about that. Because it was early in the game.
      So if the refs are to blame... Why did they give the Lions 6 points

    Stafford was 3 for 13 on 3rd down. Thats why they lost.

        I normally disagree with everything Cowherd says, but as 50 year Lion fan, there is absolutely zero doubt he is correct on this one. We all want to love Matty Stafford cuz he's such as "Aw shucks" nice guy, has the cannon arm, is WAY better than other Lion QBs of the past 35 years, the wife issue, etc. etc. etc. BUT, there is a reason we have never won a division, a playoff game, or ANY meaningful game since we drafted him. He doesn't have IT. The IT that Brady and Rodgers have. The IT that tells you when you gotta have a TD and when a FG is ok. The IT to wring the neck off a down opponent, the IT to convert a 3rd down late in the 4th quarter, the IT to be a WINNER. Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Mahomes, Wilson, - these are the guys we'll continue to see in the post season, not good ole' Matty. Hard to take. Hard to take.

          you are owned by the nfl, nba, nh,l mlb and every other 3 letter string of yourself. You do NOT report the news or anything objective. Easy to see news and rating tactics with you, get better at your job so we can remain your fan . you recently became too obvious. you only lost the intelligent fans, you will always keep your lost fools of sports news. Guess again...Colin maybe your next report will be closer

            I disagree, if the first hands to the face call wasnt made, greed bay would have been punting the ball to detroit with under 5 to go in a 2 possession game. That definitely makes a huge difference

                Yeah the lions could have made mor plays,but that doesn't change the fact that the refs cost them the game.

                  No Stanford was running out the clock the refs made multiple bad calls that gave the packers points. And there’s also is a bad o line.

                      Fair point Colin, but when the QB or offense doesn’t get it done you ask the defense to step and they did. Stafford may look the part but when the League wants to make sure Aaron Rogers wins what can you do? Stafford and his team had the lead the whole game until the end. Some points beats no points and Stafford can’t throw and catch the ball too. There were some crucial drops that should have been caught.....that said the refs stole the game from Detroit point blank.

                          Speaking on behalf of Browns, Lions, Jets, Buffalo, etc... fans. Telling someone who's team ALWAYS gets the short end of the stick that their team should have done more when a ref screws them over sounds condescending. Do you think its a coincidence that in 5 YEARS in NE, Flowers never got called for hand-to-face, then within the first 5 GAMES in Detroit he gets called TWICE?

                            Here's the thing the officials didn't make calls when Staff and company were on offense like pass interference so it works both ways. Refs take away good defense and on offense refs allow stuff that should be called to pass thus hurting the offensive game then try to blame Staff for it smh

                              I'm convinced these media puppets tow the same line as head coaches because they get memos saying not to criticize the officiating because it's bad for the overall product and marketing of the league. Whoever says the refs didn't affect that finish is a delusional puppet of the league narrative.

                              Speak up. Some of these games are obviously pre determined and the refs make calls to sway the games.

                                Except for one thing in regards to Stafford:

                                He has given the Lions the lead in all 5 games with 1 minute left - and the defense could not get a stop EVEN THOUGH the opposition had to go at least 70 yards...

                                  Botched calls shouldn't decide a game, but in both cases it did. The lions are victimized every year and we just get ref apology's. Lions fans are getting sick of the team messing up at the most crucial times

                                                      This is not a hot take, this is an absolute joke of a take. We were leading against Aaron Rodgers in Lambeau. Do you know how hard it is to win in Lambeau? Extremely hard. Are you going to blame Stafford for the Hockenson drop in the endzone? Or the refs not calling PI on the defender that took out marvin jones before the ball got there? On top of that officiating blunder you have a multitude of terrible calls by the refs that went Green Bays way. Yes, there were things we could have obviously done better, but how can anyone possibly say that Stafford is to blame? This is why everyone thinks media analysts are jokes and do not respect them. I am honestly kicking myself for clicking on this video and supporting this clown.

                                                          These calls were constantly in favor of the packers. They got lucky period. The lions where beating them the entire game.

                                                            Packers have greased palms to win games. It does not matter what opportunities are missed by opposing team. Corrupt refs will find a way to help their palm greasing teams win. Reviewing calls in the last two minutes will not stop corruption. The stats of Stafford do not matter when corrupt refs will help opposing teams incl. Patriot, Packers and Chiefs win!

The calls were trashand called only when the game was on the line for green bay, but we normally lose so it's kinda our thing. We normally forget about the fourth quarter

Jimmy Graham was not held on 3rd and 5, it should have been 4th and 5 and a FG at best, makes score 13 - 3. Packers get a call on Walker PF on receiver... MNF Rules analyst didn't see forcible contact. So lets say that defenders don't have same right to the ball from now on. Score at half is 13-6. Pack comes out gets a FG to start 2nd half 13-9. Detroit answers with 16-9 and 19-9 then 22-9. Then illegal use of hands #1 comes in, should have been 4th and 15-16 yards. No Pass Interference call which would have been easy FG for Prater makes score 25-9. Final illegal use of hands call not called would have resulted in 4th and 4 with score of 25-9... So Rodgers threw for 24 more yards with an interception and GB had two fumbles. The FACTS are very clear if these calls were not made incorrectly, this would not have gone GB way. So to pin this on Stafford is ignorant of the facts. Every Packers scoring drive had a defensive penalty... what are the odds?

Yes Stafford is not a top-5 QB but he and the Lions team played well enough to win on Monday night. The much bigger issue is this. If the referees were trying to throw the game for the Packers it would have looked exactly the way it played out on Monday Night. That is a HUGE problem for the NFL. The NFL is a multi-billion dollar per year industry. There literally is NO EXCUSE for them not being able to find, train and implement competent officiating in 2019. PERIOD. But they are not doing that and it is making their competition a farce because the Lions should actually be in first place right now in the NFC North and instead they are in last place because of the refs. Yes, I understand that "more people" would rather see Aaron Rodgers in a playoff game than Matthew Stafford but football is a TEAM sport. Not a "STAR" sport like the NBA. Have a nice day.

Perhaps you should listen and learn from all the people who have experience instead of all this nonsense that spewing in an attempt to get someone to click on your video.
