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.”
NFL exec Troy Vincent, here in Florida for this Fall Meeting, says the second hands to the face call last night is “not something that you want to see called.” Vincent says he’ll speak with Mrs. Ford today and reach out to GM Bob Quinn, as well.
