47. Worst Call of the Year

Week: Week 12

Even the best officials have bad moments, but this one from Thanksgiving Day stands out above all others. The Texans' Justin Forsett is clearly tackled and down, only he keeps running and eventually scores. While the officials clearly missed the call, normally it would have been reversed by the automatic review after a scoring play; however, in a decision clearly motivated by his desire to one-up the stupidity of the refs' call, Lions coach Jim Schwartz managed to get the replay review canceled and the touchdown upheld. The Lions, naturally, went on to lose the game by less than a touchdown.
