How should Lions react to ending?

Scott Van Pelt asks Louis Riddick how he would react to NFL VP of Officiating Dean Blandino's statement that the referees incorrectly handled the K.J. Wright batted ball that gave the Seahawks a touchback: "What can you do?"


Bennett blames Stafford for JFK?

K.J. Wright left no doubt about his intention on fumble. "I wanted to just knock it out of bounds and not try to catch it and fumble it."

Seahawks hang on to top Lions

Kam Chancellor forced Calvin Johnson to fumble at the goal line late in the fourth quarter, securing Seattle's 13-10 win over Detroit.


Chancellor saves game for Seattle

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor on his game-changing fumble against Calvin Johnson, which helped seal Seattle's 13-10 win over Detroit: "It's never over 'til you cross that end zone."


Explanation from the officiating crew

NFL VP of Officiating Dean Blandino after speaking to the officiating crew at Monday night's Seahawks-Lions game: "I have spoken to the referee (Tony Corrente). He did not see that part of the play because that is not his area. The back judge (Greg Wilson) felt is was not an intentional act, that it was inadvertent."


Ed Werder @Edwerderespn

In replays, back judge Greg Wilson is on end line, staring at KJ Wright with unobstructed view and rules tap was inadvertent

Megatron comes up short

Calvin Johnson has been kept in check for most of the evening. Johnson was about to burst through the end zone to give Detroit the lead -- until Kam Chancellor punched the ball free at the goal line for a game-saving forced fumble.


Controversial finish to Monday night game

After Kam Chancellor forced the Calvin Johnson fumble near the goal line, KJ Wright batted the ball in the end zone over the back line for a touchback. Wright's play was illegal, according to Dean Blandino, head of NFL officiating, and thus the Lions should have gotten the ball back at half yard line. Story


VP of Officiating on controversial ending

Dean Blandino, NFL VP of Officiating, on KJ Wright batting the ball out of the end zone: "Judgment call on the field. Back judge felt it wasn't overt. That's why he didn't call it on the field."


Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions WR Calvin Johnson was asked about being part of another controversial call going against him -- like the process catch rule: "At the end of the day you can't leave it in the referee's hands."

Lions' reaction to controversial ending

  • Matthew Stafford: "I have heard about that. It doesn't make me feel better right about now."
  • Calvin Johnson: "At the end of the day, you can't leave it in the refs' hands."

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

Pete Carroll admitted that the Seahawks caught a break on the game-changing play late in the fourth quarter. Seahawks LB K.J. Wright batted the Calvin Johnson fumble out of the back of the end zone, but the officials ruled a touchback for Seattle. "We were fortunate," Carroll said.

Caldwell: 'We're not going to cry about it'

Lions coach Jim Caldwell on the ref's missed call after Seahawks LB K.J. Wright's batted ball was incorrectly ruled a touchback and possession for Seattle: "I mean what can you do? You know what I mean? We're not going to cry about it."


MikeTirico @miketirico

On the touchback. Official involved said he thought bat was inadvertent. Clearly it wasn't. Not reviewable because it is a foul

Gerry Austin: Wright play was illegal

Former NFL referee Gerry Austin explains why K.J. Wright batting the ball out of the end zone for a touchback was actually an illegal play.


Pete Carroll on controversial ending

"It's a very unique situation ... It was a difficult ending for [Detroit], of course. ... It's unfortunate the officials didn't know how to deal with it."

Bennett: Chancellor needs to get paid

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett video bombed teammate Kam Chancellor's interview, yelling "Pay him!"


KC Joyner @KCJoynerTFS

When a punter bats it, it's out of his own end zone & is a safety so the illegal bat isn't accepted.
