Skip to comments.Dallas v Detroit: The Pass Interference Flag Picked Up

The play everyone is freaking out about. Lions 87 should be called for illegal hands to the face mask, Hitchens COULDN'T turn his head.
Yanking on an opponent’s jersey must be legal now.
Not really but it has NOTHING to do with pass interference. And a lot of folks get by with it.
Looks like he trapped the other players hand with his face mask...
The game is over. Let it go.
I wish all the Cowboys haters WOULD let it go.
They also missed a hold on Dallas. But of course the punchline is they lost the game because Caldwell didn’t go for it on the ensuing 4th and 1. They lacked the will to win, and lost.
Just finished Bill Polian’s new book.
He was on the NFL competition committee for many years.
He talks about how the league has changed pass defense policy several times back and forth over the years.
Of course in his view the Pats got away with murder vs the Colts over several playoff games.
It’s just a game. Get over it.
There were several bad calls that game. A couple of plays later Whitten was grabbed and held going across the middle. He clearly would have broken open for a likely TD.
I think Brandolini should be demoted. He wants to express his opinion as definitive when it demonstrates how badly his crew of refs have done. He should be taking action, if he believes there was error. The Commissioner needs to get involved with him.
Talk to the ones squawking. I just answered them with a clip. Let me know what they say.
Eagles fan here but I firmly believe Jason Witten is a first ballot HOF’er...That dude can play some football.
I lived among Eagles for 2 years in a suburb of Philly 2009-2011. Got to be friends with Randy Logan, a real class act that guy!
Had to be tough being a Dallas fan(?) living in Philly. Probably met some pretty boorish fans, but we’re not all like that.
My mom and stepdad are Cowboys fans...hate the ‘Skins more than they hate the Eagles....could be the result of having to work in DC for some years.
Credit where credit is due...I cringe whenever I see Witten taking the field against the Eagles...much like Uggla against the Philles...
The NFL is dirty. Can’t be trusted.
God bless those refs and umpires, etc.
I can’t imagine trying to do that job, trying not to miss anything while its happening so fast. , split decisions, close calls, and all the while you have a universe of fans focusing on instant replay after the fact criticism. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t.
Seriesly , who did he want to win . . . . . the, the um, Lions? LOL
