But Wait, There’s More: NFL Admits Missed Hold on Suh

Sigh, we’re not entirely sure what this is helping at this point. One day after the NFL’s Vice President of Officiating offered his step-by-step video breakdown of the fated Brandon Pettigrew/Anthony Hitchens did-he-or-didn’t-he pass interference controversy (that ultimately resulted in an admission of a missed defensive holding call), NFL insider Adam Schefter reports of another admission this afternoon.

“NFL admitted to Lions today that officials missed a hold on Ndamukong Suh on the 4th-down conversion from Tony Romo to Jason Witten with 6 minutes left in the game (after the controversial Brandon Pettigrew play and before the Dallas TD). Had holding been called, it would have put Cowboys in 4th and 16 on Detroit side of the field. Dallas would have punted and Detroit still would have the lead. One person said that this is “even worse than the PI call/no call.”

After converting on fourth down, the Dallas Cowboys would continue marching down the field, culminating an 11-play, 59-yard drive with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Terrance Williams. The score would cap a 17-0 run for the Cowboys, handing them a 24-20 lead for which they would not relinquish.
