NFL-Controversial non-call denies Lions chance of first win (Reuters)

A controversial non-call may have cost the Detroit Lions their first win of the season following a wild finish to their 13-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. With the Lions trailing by three in the final two minutes, Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson fumbled the ball one yard from a touchdown and Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright appeared to intentionally bat the ball out of the back of the end zone for a touchback. “It is a questionable play because it was a batted ball, but that goes upstairs (for review) so there’s nothing you can do about it,” Lions coach Jim Caldwell told reporters.
