Report: NFL’s Vincent says officials were wrong on second hands-to-face penalty

GREEN BAY (WKOW) — NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent said officials were wrong when they called the second hands-to-the-face penalty against the Detroit Lions that set up the Green Bay Packers’ game-winning field goal Monday night.

According to ESPN, Vincent was asked about the penalties during a news conference at the league’s fall meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Tuesday, a day after the Packers defeated the Lions 23-22.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted that Vincent said the penalty was, “not  something that you want called.”
