The 2020 season is officially in the books for the Detroit Lions and not surprisingly, they got screwed by the refs multiple times during their loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Following a blown call that should have resulted in a Marvin Jones Jr. touchdown, former Detroit Lions OL T.J. Lang took to Twitter to accuse the NFL of fixing games against the Lions (though we doubt he really means that).

In addition to Lang, plenty took to social media to blast the refs for an awful call.
Upon further review, NFL officiating is officially corrupt.
Anybody watching this DET-MIN game? First they gift MIN a TD on a bogus roughing penalty then overturn a clear cut TD catch by Marvin Jones.
Same thing happens in almost every game.
It’s become WWE. Just like the NBA

How is that last Marvin Jones touchdown NOT a touchdown?!
The ball never hits the ground and he possesses it multiple times during the catch. Makes no god damn sense. Make a review team that is competent, @nflcommish. What the hell?!
That terrible call could cost me thousands. pic.twitter.com/BvaE22aGZO

I don’t care if the Lions win this game because of draft position, but the refs bring out the emotion simply because the horrendous calls between this and the Marvin Jones TD being overturned. https://t.co/meMatcVrdV
