One of football fans' favorite conspiracy theories is that the NFL is rigged and the outcomes are predetermined to ensure the best storylines to increase audience tune-in.

What happened at the end of the Detroit Lions - Minnesota Vikings game (December 11) may not prove a grand conspiracy, but a weird glitch certainly got fans talking.

Perhaps you missed the bugout video from the Fox Sports telecast because you were excited about that big win over the Vikings.

Following the game-ending turnover, the video runs a split-second frame back about 8 times before returning to a standard feed.

TotalProSports compiled a list of tweets about the glitch with many unoriginal comments about a 'glitch in the matrix.'

What the video glitch couldn't take away was the Lions' strong performance against the division leader who came in at 10-2. Detroit improves their chances at making the playoffs and remains very much in contention for a Wild Card berth.

Up next for the Lions is a stout Jets team who made their own headlines for an ironman performance from quarterback Mike White who was knocked out of the game twice after tough hits by the Buffalo Bills defense but returned to action each time only to seek medical care for suspected internal injuries after the game.

LOOK: The story behind every NFL team name

Stacker delved into the story behind every NFL football team name. Overall team records, also included, are reflective of NFL regular-season games. There are some football teams with well-known nicknames—the Jets, for instance, are often referred to as Gang Green—but we also divulge how some teams’ official names are sparingly used (the Jets’ neighbors, the Giants, are actually known as the New York Football Giants). Sometimes a team name can tell you a lot about local history: The Vikings of Minnesota draw upon the area’s strong ties to Scandinavia, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dripping in local legend related to Florida’s pirate past.

Let’s kick off the countdown with the folks who earned their nickname by buying boxes of used team jerseys.
