During the fourth quarter of Sunday’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr. made an amazing catch just short of the goal line, only to have the official rule it an incomplete pass.
Though the officials missed Jones Jr. clearly getting both feet in bounds, they had a chance to right their wrong when Lions interim head coach Darrell Bevell tossed out the challenge flag.
But, the officials still could not get it right as the original call was upheld.
As soon as the play was over, social media exploded with video and photos, proving without a doubt that Jones Jr. made the catch and got both of his feet in bounds.

In fact, when the game was over, Marvin spoke told reporters that he was mic’d up for the game and that multiple officials told him that it should have been a catch.
Well, another person who admitted it was a catch is Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers.
On Tuesday, Rodgers was a guest on the Pat McAfee Show and he was asked if he thought Jones Jr. made the catch.
”That was a hell of a catch,” Rodgers said. “Just a classic Cal guy making plays.”
Yeah, we agree, Aaron!
"For the 1st time in 16 years on Sunday I went into the opposing teams locker room…
AP came in & we did a jersey swap… I took my jersey in there into Detroits locker room & got to see Matty was still in there & Chase, AP, & Marvin" ~ @AaronRodgers12 #PatMcAfeeShowLIVE pic.twitter.com/i7ELYTU3Ni
