It has not been a fun week for the Detroit Lions and their fans.

On Monday, the Lions were screwed multiple times by the officials, costing them what would have been a huge win over the Green Bay Packers. The win would have put the Lions in first place in the NFC North, but instead, they are in last.

This week, the Lions will look to get back over the .500 mark when they square off against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field.

About 1-hour before kickoff, the officials came out onto the field and the Lions fans who were already in the stadium let them have it!

From MLive:

Ford Field was maybe 10% full when the officials emerged from the tunnel 53 minutes before the Lions’ game on Sunday against Minnesota. Yet that was enough for the crowd to greet the men in stripes with a hearty and unmistakable torrent of boos.

Yeah, these guys and their every call — or non-call — are going to be under a microscope today.

Detroit has been victimized by some questionable officiating this season, including on a pair of highly dubious hands to the face calls against Trey Flowers on Monday Night Football. Both came on third-down stops late in the fourth quarter, and both led to scores, including the Packers’ game-winning field goal as time expired.

You can bet Ford Field will be LOUD today!

GO LIONS!!
