Video shows Green Bay Packers M.D. Jennings and Seattle Seahawks Golden Tate struggle for the ball after Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson attempted to throw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate.
Substitute referees ruled that Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Golden Tate (#81)caught the ball for a completion and touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks, even though Green Bay Packers Safety M.D. Jennings (#43) had the ball pinned to his chest (interception?) and a receiver by NFL rules has to have control of the ball in order to get credit for a catch and score a touchdown.
After 10 minutes to review the replay, and rule a touchdown; the referees resumed play, Seattle scored the extra point to wind 14-12.
AP Sports Columnist Jim Litke says that it is time for the National Football league to admit that their use of replacement officials is a problem. A botched call at the end of the Seattle, Green Bay Monday night game cost the Packers a win.
Replacement ref rage peaked Monday night thanks to Seattle’s Golden Tate, and a bizarre touchdown call that will be debated, questioned and re-ignite frustrations over the locked-out officials.
