Detroit Lions receiver Danny Amendola was busted for taking a pot shot at Green Bay Packers cornerback Kevin King during Sunday’s game, and it hurt his team.

Following the first interception of the game by David Blough, Amendola hit King late and out of bounds, drawing a 15-yard penalty.

This dumb penalty set Aaron Rodgers and the Packers up in Detroit territory. Amendola, who had previously been a hero for his trick-play touchdown pass, was suddenly a goat for his team, as a handful of plays later the Packers tied the game up.
