Seattle Seahawks Beat Green Bay Packers In Controversial Disputed Call
The Seattle Seahawks' won against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football in a bizarre disputed call that had Packers fans reeling and replacement officials fending off an entire weekend of criticism.
Just as the clock ran out, Seattle's Russell Wilson threw a 24-yard pass to teammate Golden Tate in the end zone, who pushed Green Bay's Sam Shields away and then wrestled M.D. Jennings (pictured) for the ball. On the field, the play was ruled a touchdown for the Seahawks and, after a 10-minute review, the teams were called back to the field, where referee Wayne Elliott declared that the ruling was sound.
While the Packers maintained that the play was an interception — a decision that would have won the game for them — it was declared a touchdown, leaving a final score of 14-12 for the Seahawks. The replacement officials have had their share of harsh criticism this weekend, following a series of disputed calls that have NFL coaches and players livid, and even football greats like NFL Hall of Famer Troy Aikman tweeting, "These games are a joke."
