After Jags took Texans to overtime, Lions must be feeling a lot better about facing them than they did a couple weeks ago.

I think that Jags game was a bit of a fluke. Texans should be better today, although with Jonathon Joseph out, it could make for a big day for Megatron.

Good game so far. Could easily be 14-0 or worse. That ball on the punt return definitely hit the Texans player.

My pick isn't looking good for this game.

He was down.

Jim Schwartz just F'd his team.

Simms has it wrong. It's not reviewable because Schwartz threw the challenge flag. It has nothing to do with there not being a whistle.

Correct. If no challenge flag, it's reviewed automatically.

This. But the rule is difficult. Remember when AR was penalized for throwing the challenge flag the first season the rule was in? Lots of coaches made that mistake that season. Guess some coaches still forget about it.

It's a stupid rule. It doesn't slow the game down when a coach calls a challenge on a TD because they are going to review it anyway.

This is what happens when they change 400 rules every offseason. It takes one big incident for everyone to learn their lesson.

I agree. Just tell the coach he can't challenge and be done with it.

I missed the action in real time...what the hell happened? I saw the play itself...why wasn't it reviewed like every other TD? Because Schwartz threw a challenge flag? Haven't seen that rule implemented before

Exactly. It doesn't slow down the game any more than the moronic pushing and shoving after the whistle.

Better yet. Take away that challenge, since they've illegally used it. But they should still challenge the play, since it was a scoring play. It's like a child's mentality: "I was going to do it anyway. But since you told me to do it, I'm not going to do it, just to spite you." No reason to directly affect the outcome of a game just for the sake of being proper.
