Half of the Free Press sports columnists and a turkey call for a Lions victory on Turkey Day. I am in agreement. Hope it's a good one!

Free Press writers split on who will win Lions vs. Texans Thanksgiving game | Detroit Lions | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

I agree that it's time for Broyles to step into the spotlight.

Texans are a tough bunch, not so sure the Lions can pull it off. Stafford and those protecting him will have to bring their A game.

Here I was, thinking the replacement refs were gone. Happy Thanksgiving from Walt Coleman.

Detroit got screws, they had their chances in overtime but the game should not have gone into overtime in the first place.

What a game, Detroit should have won. How about the coach throwing the red flag on a play that would be reviewed anyway? Rules are rules, dumb as they may be. The review would have over turned the TD, of course the refs should have blown the whistle, he was down. What a mess! Watching Suh, he still is accident waiting for a place to happen.

I'm not so sure his knee was down nor would the play been overturned. It looks like it almost scraped the ground, but may not have.

I say it was a good no-call.

Justin Forsett, Houston Texans gifted a touchdown - NFL.com

NFL.com writer disagrees as does the CBS commentators and anyone else who saw the play. Video in the link clearly shows knee and elbow on the turf.

IMHO, you missed it on this one for sure. The elbow and entire forearm were on the ground. But it was all negated because the Schwartz over reacted and threw the flag.

It never should have reached that point though. The ref's blew that call.

They also blew the punt that hit the Texan (see how he snapped his head back looking for the ball after it hit him)?

I'd also like to see a replay of the "offsides" call that gave the Texans a first down (In OT I think?).

Dang I sure hated the way it played out for the Lion's. Oh well, life goes on.

his elbows were clearly down, he was down. The refs blew the call.

yeah if only The Swartz would have known the rule, or if Detroit wouldn't have let Houston drive the length of the field at the end of the game, or if Hanson didn't miss his FG in OT, or if....
