If you happened to catch Monday night’s game between the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys, you once again had the chance to witness some awful officiating, mostly against the Lions.
One call that came against the Lions was when rookie A’Shawn Robinson tackled Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in the third quarter. Check it our for yourself and see if you think a personal foul penalty was warranted.
Today's @NFL this is a 15 yard penalty.

Apparently, whoever is running the NFL’s Twitter account was as confused as everyone else as they tweeted out the following right after the penalty was called.

Obviously, the Cowboys were the far superior team on Monday night, but the Lions cannot be forced to beat the referees too.
