Watch: Justin Forsett’s blown call TD
The holidays are upon us, and evidently the NFL Referees are in the spirit of giving.
In Thanksgiving’s Lions/Texans match-up, the Refs blew a call leading to an 80 yard touchdown by Texans RB Justin Forsett.
As you can see in the video below, Forsett was clearly down with both his knee and his elbow, but the refs missed the call and awarded a touchdown. Usually all scores are automatically reviewed, but Lions head coach Jim Schwartz tossed his challenge flag and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, thus resulting in cancellation of the would-be review.
Check it out in the video below!
