It appeared Detroit coach Jim Schwartz helped the touchdown stand by throwing his challenge flag.
The TD counted and Detroit was called for unsportsmanlike conduct. A Lions spokesman said a coach is not allowed to challenge a scoring play, which is automatically reviewed - and if the coach does throw a challenge flag, the automatic review is negated.
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz was seen tapping his chest on the sideline, saying ``it's on me'' while talking to coaches and players.
The irate crowd at Detroit's Ford Field kept booing the call for several minutes, even as the game continued.
