Near the end of the second half, it looked like the Chicago Bears had an interception that would turn the game around as the Detroit Lions were driving with a one point lead.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford hit receiver Golden Tate who was stripped by Kyle Fuller. The Bears caught the ball off a tip as it was ruled an interception. The refs went back to review it and ruled that Tate had a touchdown instead of the interception ruled on the field.. The ref never gave an explanation on the call and the Lions took a 8 point lead into halftime.
Now Vice President of officiating has released a statement as to why it was a touchdown:

Still doesn’t seem like it was the right call and others around the league agree.
Again, I don't believe the Golden Tate play in #CHIvsDET was a TD
