There was plenty to discuss after the Green Bay Packers’ 23-22 win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
In particular, on two calls: a pair of illegal-hands-to-the-face penalties on Lions defensive end Trey Flowers. Both calls helped the Packers stay in the game.
The 1st penalty came on a third-and-10 that gave the Packers a first down. Three plays later, Rodgers dropped a dime to Allen Lazard for a touchdown.
On the Packers’ final possession on a third-and-4, Flowers was again called for the same and it allowed the Packers to hit the game winning field goal.
Everybody was upset, and that included Desmond Howard.
The former football player turned analst took to Twitter and called for an investigation of the refs and bank accounts.
“The refs need to be investigated. This is horrendous. Check bank accounts. #NoExcuses”
“It is a damn shame that the brilliance of @AaronRodgers12 will take a backseat to TWO ridiculous calls by the officials. He made TWO of the best throws you will see all season.”
