SHARE Jay Cutler calls Lions game ‘bizarre’ after controversial calls

The NFL makes players walk a very fine line during their press conferences. On one hand, star players are required to speak to the media after games. On the other, they can get fined for their answers.

Following the Bears overtime 37-34 loss to the Lions, Jay Cutler was put in an awkward situation on the podium. When asked what he thought of the game overall given some of the controversial calls made by the referees, Cutler tried to play it safe but was clearly annoyed with how things turned out.

It was really bizarre, there was a lot of different things going on. Like you said with the penalties and then the instant replays, and you know you can’t comment on that anyways because you’ll get fined, so we’ll let that be.

The most noticeable of the strange calls was the overturned Bears interception that became a Detroit touchdown.

With seconds left in the first half, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate pulled in a slat pass in the end zone. The ball was torn out by a Bears defender and caught by Jonathan Anderson. Despite being originally ruled a catch, the referee overturned the call after replay.

When asked about the decision, referee Walt Coleman offered his explanation.

For his part, Cutler played well. He threw for 353 yards and a touchdown. Cutler also threw an interception in the end zone.
