NFL officials tried to screw Detroit Lions on final play vs. Falcons but it did not work [Photo]

By now, you have almost certainly seen how the Detroit Lions scored on the final play of the game on Sunday to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 23-22.

On that play, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford found tight end T.J. Hockenson, who was wide open, for the game-winner.

But did the NFL officials try to screw the Lions?

@thegibb2 on Twitter has us wondering what the hell happened just prior to the final play of the game as the ball was first spotted at the 8-yard line after a Kenny Golladay catch but then respotted at the 11-yard line following the review.

Here is a look at the original spot and then the spot following the review.

Nation, you be the judge. What were the referees trying to do here?

What do you think?
