For angry, heartbroken Detroit Lions fans there isn't much consolation.

The NFL admitted to blowing a pass interference call and missing an offensive holding call in Sunday's game vs the Cowboys, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Dallas then squeaked by Detroit 24-20 with a game-winning touchdown drive, knocking the Lions out of the playoffs.

Well, thanks for being honest, NFL. But it doesn't change the outcome of the game. What's done is done-- The Lions are done this year.

For what it's worth, President Barack Obama says he gets it.

Update On Detroit Lions Fan Who Got Super Bowl Champs Tattoo Last Summer [Video]

You might remember us talking about a Detroit Lions fan who, last summer, got a little carried away when he got himself inked up with a tattoo celebrating the Lions' Super Bowl title.

Well, unfortunately for that guy (but not at all surprising to anyone else), the Lions will NOT be winning the Super Bowl this year because they were eliminated Sunday by the Dallas Cowboys.

No worries, though. The guy has a plan B.
