Unless you are a Dallas Cowboys fan you are most likely outraged by the way the Cowboys' 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions ended. So much that went so wrong at the end of that game, which turns into an incredible embarrassment for the NFL.
Here is a little of the social media reaction, starting with the governor of New Jersey and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a very awkward man-hug celebration.

Mike Pereira, former vice president of NFL officiating, was adamant during the FOX broadcast that the officials had messed up this call. He remained that way after the game.
I am out of here. Biggest call was the DPI pickup. It was DPI and it was defensive holding as well. Not good. Flying back to Sac tonight.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) January 5, 2015
Dez on the field, helmet off, yelling at ref. Not unsportsmanlike conduct? pic.twitter.com/gK7GbPxCIP— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) January 5, 2015
Dean Blandino and this crew got some splaining to do. Lions got screwed.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) January 5, 2015
Unless I took this AFTER the ball deflected off Pettigrew, that's a penalty. (Spoiler alert: I didn't.) pic.twitter.com/VoVXjFNMl1— Dave Dameshek (@Dameshek) January 5, 2015
