Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

The Detroit Lions suffered another self-inflicted loss Thursday and committed 10 penalties in a 16-14 Thanksgiving defeat to the Chicago Bears.

After the game, Lions quarterback Jared Goff took a problem with the amount of team penalties assessed against the Lions.

“The false start is entirely on us,” Goff said. “It can not happen, but you can call to hold on to every single game. It’s no excuse. We’ve done it too much and I know those guys are tough on themselves in front, but behind they can throw that flag. every time. To me it seemed like it was a little too often on that call. “

Center Evan Brown was called up to hold on to the next game, and Jamaal Williams followed up with a false start, leaving the Lions with a first-and-30 from Chicago 49.
