How is This a Touchdown and Not an Interception?
When you watch this play between the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears, the first thing you think is that Lions wide receiver Golden Tate couldn't hang on to the ball and it was intercepted by the Bears.
Surely after they criticism the NFL has gotten after the Dez Bryant no catch and the Calvin Johnson no catch, you'd think this was an interception right? Wrong. After the play was reviewed, the NFL ruled that it was a touchdown for the Lions.
Wait, what? That's a touchdown? How's that possible? Well, NFL’s VP of Officiating Dean Blandino tried his best to make you accept what your eyes didn't see.
The Lions ended up wining the game 37-34.
