Lions QB Jared Goff 'very confused' following penalty on decisive two-point play vs. Cowboys

+

The Lions seemingly drew up the perfect play to escape Dallas with a win over the Cowboys on Saturday night. Then, the flag came in. On a two-point attempt, down 20-19 with 27 seconds left, the Lions dialed up a play-action pass to offensive tackle Taylor Decker, who sneaked off the end of the line unnoticed to the backside of the end zone for an apparent go-ahead catch before the referees penalized him for illegal touching -- a call that would prove the doom of Detroit after two more failed attempts and an unsuccessful onside kick sealed the loss. "We get down there, get the touchdown and get the two-point conversion and yeah, it sucks," Jared Goff told reporters, per the team transcript. "It's unfortunate man. I don't know if I've had this feeling before where you feel like you won but you didn't."
