Media, fans react to poor officiating in Lions/Packers Monday Night Football heartbreaker

The Detroit Lions have every right to feel slighted by the officials in tonight’s game after two soft illegal use of the hands penalties had a direct outcome on the game’s final score.

Green Bay would leave with a come-from-behind 23-22 victory on a last-second Mason Crosby field goal. But it was the events that led to that and the Packers’ previous touchdown to pull them within two points that everyone will be talking about over the next week.

Lions legend Barry Sanders couldn’t keep his thoughts to himself, blasting the officials via Twitter.

Let’s check out what other media members and fans alike are saying.
