I will keep posting, they have a 20-0 lead and give the game back to a team whose offense can't get out of their own way even with Rodgers as QB?

Every fan has probably felt at one time or another they were on the bad side of a call, however, 4 quarters, not one play, do not let a team back in the game.

I have no sympathy for the Lions. Even with a poor facemask call, 30 other NFL teams would be able to defend a desperation heave properly. If their run game was actually acceptable, they could have ran more clock than they did.

If you're going to chide Lions fans for pointing out that the call was bogus, I'm not sure this is the best way to phrase it. In four quarters, the Lions outscored the Packers 23-21. On the one free play with 0:00 on the clock resulting from the bogus call, the Packers outscored the Lions 6-0. So I wouldn't talk about "four quarters" if I were you. I'd take your win quietly.

This quote says it all:

"It was a face mask," Rodgers said. "I was looking for the flag afterwards."

Yep, and that's why you got it. Congrats.

I'm not a Lions fan, but I think they are waiting for the karma on the batted ball play. Same end zone, nearly the same spot as the Fail Mary, same team.

All in the interpretation, I guess. I know what I was trying to say, the score was 20-0, I get the first 2 quarters, totally get it. I'll go quietly sorry.

So who's the 31st team?

Apparently the Lions are out of the hunt for a playoff spot.
