Worst call in NFL History? Packers (Jennings) Interception and Seahawks Win

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.
