John Maakaron

In the second quarter Sunday, the Lions had just taken a 14-7 lead, and were attempting to stop the Vikings from scoring the game-tying touchdown. 

The Vikings were gashing the Lions' defense with the help of big-time plays from wide receiver Stefon Diggs and running back Dalvin Cook. 

But at the 12:52 mark in the first half, Detroit safety Tracy Walker appeared to have thwarted off the threat by intercepting Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. 

However, to no surprise, the dreaded flag hit the turf at Ford Field. 

Lions standout cornerback Justin Coleman was flagged for pass interference. 

There was instant confusion and booing from the Lions faithful, and the officials went to the booth to review what occurred. 

The call on the field stood, and the Vikings retained possession.  

On the next snap, Minnesota rookie receiver Olabisi Johnson caught a touchdown pass from Cousins that tied the game.

Watch as Coleman describes what the official told him regarding the pass interference call.
