What's also interesting are the calls in the first half that were extremely suspect on the Cowboys. The reason we aren't speaking about it is because the Cowboys handled their business by responding and scoring afterwards.
Demarco Murray scores a TD and it gets brought back on a phantom holding call by Witten. They also threw a flag for "illegal shift" despite the fact that no one was in motion
Also, Williams gets BLATANTLY pushed into a DB and gets called for "offensive PI" (what's even more interesting is Denver runs these 'pick plays' quite often but again, Williams gets pushed).
There was also a call in the second half where they had ruled GOlden Tate I believe short of the first down. A ref ends up running over to Caldwell and they are speaking of the play, which is unchallengeable under 2 minutes. After the discussion they announce to have it reviewed despite the fact it should have came from the booth.
The Cowboys ended up scoring after the phantom Witten call, Williams responded with a 76 yard TD, and the defense held the Lions to a FG anyway. None of this will be brought up because it resulted in the Cowboys doing what they were supposed to do.
