Last week’s Lion’s game will be remembered for a long time to come. It won’t be because they had a hard fought game and came close to winning against one of the current number one teams in the league. No, it will be because the coach threw the challenge flag on a scoring play giving the Texans a touchdown that would have certainly been revoked.
Whether you agree with the rule or not, the fact is that a team cannot challenge a scoring play and, if they do, the play cannot be reviewed. I must commend Coach Schwartz for not casting blame on the rule or the refs. Instead he said, “It’s on me…I knew the rule…but I was so mad that I overreacted.” Coach Schwartz knew he couldn’t throw that flag, but his anger got the best of him and he blew a now infamous play.
