The Lions were very much in control of the game up until around the 10:00 mark of the 4th quarter. The officials had very little impact in the game up until then. The Lions had a 10 point lead. They're defense held the Packers on a third down play. GB was about to punt it away to Detroit. What's this? A "Hands to the face" penalty that wasn't REALLY a hands to the face? Green Bay miraculously gets a new set of downs, the air was blown out of Detroit's defense, and GB goes down and scores a TD. On the Lions next possession, there was a flagrant PI committed by GB that was NOT called. The Lions have to punt. Once again, Detroit's defense stops Green Bay in the Red Zone. GB was going to have to kick a field goal with about a minute and a half left in the game. Wait! What's this? A "hands to the face" penalty against Detroit? GB now has first and goal and is able to run out the clock and kick a "game winning" field goal as time ran out. Game over.
The referees took two possessions away from Detroit, period, and screwed them out of an obvious first down that would have kept their last drive alive.
So, was the game close enough to rely on the refs for the outcome? Not until the refs decided who would win the game and got involved in making sure that happened.

IMO, the League should just go ahead and pick the two teams they want in the Superbowl, and go ahead and play it...get it over with.

The League is as crooked as a dogs hind leg, and after watching the **** show that they have put on last season and this, there is nothing you can say to convince me otherwise.

Zero penalties in the 1st quarter. A virtual flag fest in the 4th quarter. Who was in the lead in the 4th? How many went Detroit's way in the 4th?

Convince me this isn't WWE. Last night was just a small sample size of refs correcting the script.

Re: The referees this year SUCK!

I feel bad for Lions fans, that's 2 games I've watched with their team get royally screwed on the final drive.

Vs Kansas City; the Chiefs needed 2 WTF phantom holding calls both on 3rd and 4th down when they failed to convert. They got a TD out of it.

Vs Green Bay, the Pack needed 2 of these on 3rd down when they failed to convert to barely win.

Officiating was awful too in the Chiefs/Colts game. Patrick Mahomes has had 3 interceptions called back by the refs this year.

Detroit didn't get any calls go their way last night.

Even in the 2nd quarter, Packers needed all kinds of calls to march down the field and put a field goal on the board.

Someone in Seattle said this last year that GB's offensive line gets away with holding every game cause they have golden boy at QB and I think that is the truth. I've watched so many Packers games and they have gotten away with it for years.

These clowns are going to cost another team a win once the playoff starts.

The replay system is broken.

It'll be whoever has to play in Green Bay or Seattle.

Packers are THE team that gets all the calls in the playoffs. I have never seen a team get such favorable calls when they're on the road except them.

Go back to that "run the table" year in 2016. Several missed calls vs the Giants set that game up to be a blowout.

A week later on the road in Dallas, on that final drive, Rodgers gets picked by Sean Lee, it's called back on a tick tacky call. Early in that game, the refs called a weird penalty no one had heard since the 1980s, on Dallas of course. Even when the Packers are on the road they get all these calls go their way. Also says a lot about the "Jerry and the refs" conspiracy theories; Dallas couldn't even get favorable treatment at home against the Packers in 2016; the year the SB was just a few hours away down in Houston.

Even in Atlanta, a blowout game; the refs gave them a bunch of calls trying to spark life in them. But it didn't work cause they were truly a mediocre team and getting beat into the ground by a decent team for once.

Back in 2011 when they were 15-1, their only 2 touchdowns against the Giants were ref aided calling back a fumble and another drive where they needed a conversion.

I've always hated Seattle who needed tons of calls to go their way in their 2 SB years. We got screwed in that stadium and then against the 49ers, they needed several WTF calls to barely win that game. Wilson throwing that pick vs the Patriots was karma for all of that. They got a SB win that no one will remember cause all we ever think about is how they choked it away the next year.

How about refs eat their flags on ticky tack crap and throw it when its blatant? It's sad when announcers are shocked when there ISN'T a flag.
