OH NO, IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN.
You may want to make a grocery run for some Reynolds Wrap, because it’s officially Tin Foil Hat time.
If that name sounds familiar, it should. Blakeman’s crew officiated the Week 6 Lions vs. Packers game on “Monday Night Football” last year. That’s right, “illegal hands to the face” game. Trey Flowers ’ nightmare.
The game in which the Lions held a 22-13 lead in the fourth quarter, only to see it disappear thanks to two very questionable penalties on Flowers . The first negated a third-down sack that would’ve ended Green Bay’s drive with no points. Instead, they scored a touchdown a few plays later. The second also negated a third-down stop, preventing the Lions from getting a chance at a rebuttal late in the game.
Anyway, Blakeman and his crew will be in Lambeau again this week as the Lions try to avoid an 0-2 start to the season. Hopefully with no Packers fans in attendance, we can get a fair game in.
