Did the NFL screw the Detroit Lions out of a playoff victory against the Cowboys?

The game is over but the controversy has just begun. Two crucial calls went the Dallas Cowboys’ way in their win over the Detroit Lions today. First, the NFL’s officiating crew called a huge pass interference penalty against Dallas only to reverse it without any explanation. Then they missed an obvious hold on Tyron Smith, as you can see here: @MikePereira Obvious hold by LT...

Tyron Smith out of USC, Travis Frederick out of Wisconsin, and most recently Zack Martin out of Notre Dame.
