Packers' Tramon Williams shoves referee

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

After allowing another touchdown to the Lions, Williams opted to take it out on a ref.

Is Tramon Williams thankful for his paycheck this week? Because he put it in jeopardy when he made contact with a referee after the Green Bay Packers allowed another touchdown.


There is "incidental contact" and then there is what Williams did to that referee. Already down 33-10, the Packers were hit with a 15-yard penalty for that infraction by Williams. Clearly frustrated by being down 23 points and outgained by more than 400 yards, we can understand frustration. This is a much different Williams than the one we saw after he intercepted Matthew Stafford in the second quarter when the game was still close.

But a move like that doesn't just cost you yards, it'll likely cost Williams a lot of turkey.

Update: Williams claims it was an accident.
