For those of you who may not have heard, the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers divisional matchup this weekend at Lambeau Field will be officiated by none other than Clete Blakeman.
Blakeman, of course, was the lead official from last season’s infamous Monday Night game between the two rivals – during which he singlehandedly changed the course of the final score thanks to two controversial penalties to Trey Flowers. The first bailed the Packers out of a 3rd and 10 situation; the second allowed them to kick the game-winning field goal.
This is who will be calling this Sunday’s game. Let’s hope that because the stadium will be empty, it won’t be influencing any funny business against the road team like last time.
