Cowboys hang on as penalty nixes Lions' 2-point conversion



ARLINGTON, Texas -- Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell was visibly frustrated after a controversial penalty negated what would have been a go-ahead 2-point conversion late in Saturday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Officials flagged Lions offensive lineman Taylor Decker after he caught a pass that appeared for a moment to be the potential game-winner with 23 seconds left. Decker was called for an illegal touching penalty for not reporting as eligible.

The Cowboys ultimately denied the Lions' 2-point try and went on to win 20-19.
