NFL Tells Cowboys They Missed Up to Seven Calls in Playoff Win Over Lions

While the Cowboys get ready for another playoff game this weekend, a road game vs the Green Bay Packers, the NFL world is still talking about the calls, or missed calls in Sunday’s Cowboys win over the Lions.

The Lions have received non-stop media attention for two blown calls by the officials in the team’s 24-20 loss to the Cowboys but according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys submitted 10 questionable officiating decisions to the league and the NFL has admitted the officials failed to flag the Lions seven times, Justin Rogers of Mlive reports.

Only two specific examples were provided by reporter Clarence Hill Jr. The first, a missed hands to the face call that knocked offensive lineman Jeremy Parnell‘s helmet off.

The second, and far more relevant to the finish of the game, was a defensive holding committed by Lions safety James Ihedigbo on Dallas tight end Jason Witten on a third-and-8 play with 6:44 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The game of course ended with a lot of controversy, as the Lions were irate over the pickup of the flag during a late pass interference penalty that was picked up.

The Lions to this day are arguing the calls, while the Cowboys get ready for a Divisional Playoff game.

The Standard still has the Cowboys at 18/5 to win the NFC this season, and currently in terms of the Super Bowl, Dallas is listed at 7/1 to take home another Lombardi.
