In one of the weirdest moments of the season, Green Bay Packers linebacker Quay Walker was ejected Sunday night when he shoved a Detroit Lions' trainer. The trainer had run onto the field to tend to Lions running back D'Andre Swift.

Just ... why? Why would you do that, especially late in the fourth quarter of a must-win game. That penalty could cost the Packers the postseason.
Walker was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, then the next play was blown dead and his was ejected after a review.

The Packers led 16-13 at the time of the penalty, but the Lions scored a few plays later to take a 20-16 lead.
