In the second quarter in Friday’s Week 3 preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions linebacker Christian Jones gets called on what is one of the worst roughing the passer penalty calls ever.
Roughing the passer, negates INT… Buffalo goes on to score a TD.— Detroit Moments (@DetroitMoments) August 24, 2019

That play took away a potential interception by fellow linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin.
Yes this is preseason, but that is so egregious in its own right. It also would be recognized for Lions fans under the hashtag #DetroitVsEverybody as a guess.
Especially with the bad calls that the Lions have gotten against them in recent years.
