The Detroit Lions have received non-stop media attention for two blown calls by the officials in the team's 24-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Heck, even President Obama has weighed in on the matter.

But blown calls are a two-way street, and according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys submitted 10 questionable officiating decisions to the league and the NFL has admitted the officials failed to flag the Lions seven times.

Only two specific examples were provided by reporter Clarence Hill Jr. The first, a missed hands to the face call that knocked offensive lineman Jeremy Parnell's helmet off.

The second, and far more relevant to the finish of the game, was a defensive holding committed by Lions safety James Ihedigbo on Dallas tight end Jason Witten on a third-and-8 play with 6:44 remaining in the fourth quarter.

This was one play before the fourth-and-6 where the league told the Lions they missed a Cowboys offensive lineman holding defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

The Cowboys went on to score the game-winning touchdown eight plays later.

On the third down, Witten ran a seam route from the left slot, but had his arm hooked by Ihedigbo. After quarterback Tony Romo passed to his check-down target, the tight end can be seen throwing his arms up, appealing to the back judge for the call.

It is common practice for teams to submit questionably officiated plays to the league after each game and for follow-up conversations to take place early the next week.

These communications typically remain private, but given the magnitude of a playoff contest, and the impact these blunders had in the outcome of the game, some of information has leaked this week.

Wow what a surprise the cheating refs failed to call a perfect game.

It's impossible to be bad at your job and a ****** person also right?

"Cheating" refs...lol.

They missed 7 calls against Detroit, but they were trying to help Dallas.

Not surprising from you.

Makes you wonder how many they "missed" against Dallas...

...or how many Flags they picked up and waved off that they threw on Detroit.

So it couldn't have been poor officiating on both sides? Why does it have to be a conspiracy?

Even with proof that they blew calls against Detroit (1 being a defensive holding call on 3rd & 8 where the saftey hooked his arm around Witten's arm) you won't let go.

In my opinion not calling defensive holding on the 3rd & 8 play nullifies the no call on Hitchens. Fair is fair.

Now you're trying to discredit Clarence Hill just so you can go on believing there is some stupid conspiracy.

LMAO.

He has to have credit to begin with to be discredited. No one but Cowboys fans know who he is...

...that doesn't bode well for an argument.
