    I really think this rule is flawed. I can understand the 15 yard penalty, but making the play no longer under review is stupid. Seriously, I would just throw the flag every time I got a potentially questionable TD or a turnover just to ensure that it stood. I would take the 15 yards every time. This rule needs to be change immediately.
    Agreed, the rule is flawed. The refs have always been visually impaired; it's a prerquisite for the job!
    What a game though, especially in overtime.
    The Texans appear vulnerable and could end up one and done if they don't get it together. That J J Swatt is amazing and Suh is still Suh.

    Rules are rules

    But they might change it soon:

    Good. Schwartz should know the rules. He was a dickhead to Harbaugh last year after Harbaugh made a rookie mistake and challenged an unchallengable play and got flagged for it. Schwartz then yelled "Know the rules!" or something to the effect of it. Sure it was a bad miss by the officials but the Lions still had chances to win it after. We have gotten screwed by the refs plenty of times and have just been told to overcome the mistakes, so I have no pity for them. Plus they're a team full of douchebags so they deserve it.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    The Lions last Thanksgiving Day win was 9 years ago when they beat the Packers.

    To be fair, they didn't have too many easy opponents during that stretch.

    Coaches are briefed on that very rule before every game. Plus EVERY TD and turnover are automatically reviewed- only a moron (or an overly emotional lunkhead) would throw a challenge flag in that situation. Sure the rule is stupid and will probably be changed, but coaches are paid to react to game situations rationally, not go off hell bent. Even commentators screw up the fact that all touchdowns and turnovers are automatically reviewed. Come on man!

    So what you're saying is, if Schwartz gave half of his emotion to Frazier we'd have 2 emotionally normal coaches?
