Detroit Lions' playing surface at Ford Field has come under criticism once again with their controversial turf potentially causing another injury - one that could turn the tide of the Buffalo Bills' Super Bowl hopes. In the second quarter of the game, Bills' best pass-rusher Von Miller was rolled up on and went down clutching his knee. He would have to be carted off the field, reporters and doctors both stating that there's fears that Miller may have ruptured his ACL - an injury that would rule him out for the season.

The Lions are one of six teams in the NFL who's stadium uses slit firm turf - a style of artificial turf which could be banned after this season, with the NFLPA calling for it to be abolished due to player safety. A number of players have suffered season-ending injuries on the turf, which is said to be a least favourite amongst the majoirty of players in the league.

The New York Giants and New York Jets both use the turf at their stadium, as well as Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals, who will all be forced to move to a different style of turf or grass.

Players have continuously called upon the NFL to take action, and after Miller's injury, fans have taken to social media to call for the immediate change. One said: "Turf has to go in the NFL" as another said: "That turf in Detroit, just get rid of it", and another added: "How many players have to get severe injuries on these field turf surfaces before the NFL admits there is a problem."
