LOOK: Twitter can't believe the Miracle in Motown actually happened
Here's how Twitter reacted to the Packers-Lions ending.
The Packers won on Thursday night. They beat the Lions. If you turned off the game before the last play, this will come as a surprise, mainly because the Packers looked dead in the water with just six seconds remaining in the game.
Let's break down the reactions to the Miracle in Motown.
Category A: But what about that facemask penalty?
Lions got hosed by officials in Seattle. And now this. Feel your pain, Jim Caldwell.— Mike Chappell (@mchappell51) December 4, 2015
Fitting for this season that we only got that play because of ghost face mask to set it up and awful defensive coaching to give it a chance— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) December 4, 2015
It's even worse in slow motion. Helmet was fine after phantom facemask. Rest of hit causes AR's strap to move pic.twitter.com/pBApscuHBc— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) December 4, 2015
I fully understand how a ref can call that a facemask in real time, but fact is he blew the call and DET should have won.— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) December 4, 2015
I've seen nearly 90 years of facemask calls. That was not one.— John Dingell (@JohnDingell) December 4, 2015
A thumb grazing Rodgers' facemask was the difference. *something something game of inches*— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) December 4, 2015
Aaron Rodgers on the face mask: "I think we had some karma saved up there after the no (pass interference)."— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) December 4, 2015
Category B: Aaron Rodgers is immortal.

He lives to haunt my dreams.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) December 4, 2015
The Bears will never win a Super Bowl until Aaron Rodgers is dead, and we still have zero proof that he isn't immortal.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) December 4, 2015
That was truly an amazing throw by Aaron Rodgers -- nearly 70 yards in the air. #GBvsDET— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 4, 2015
There have been 4 completions thrown at least 60 yards beyond line of scrimmage in last 10 seasons. Aaron Rodgers has 2 of them— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 4, 2015
Category C: Poor Lions.

Leave it to the Lions to disappoint three separate fanbases in one game— Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) December 4, 2015
Wait the Lions lost? Oh Lions…— Zach Harper (@talkhoops) December 4, 2015
#Lions blew a 20-0 lead with help from a fumble recovery in the end zone and an untimed Hail Mary. Sometimes, it's just not your year.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) December 4, 2015
If you're a Lions fan, none of this surprises you. It's a way of life.— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) December 4, 2015
The Browns even think it's messed up how the Lions lost.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) December 4, 2015
And we're reminded why the Browns and Lions have the worst records in the NFL since 1999.— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) December 4, 2015

The Lions. The Lions.— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) December 4, 2015
The Lions, indeed.
