SEATTLE (AP) - The furor over the work of the NFL's replacement referees has been stoked by last night's game-winning play at the end of the Seahawks-Packers matchup.
Seattle beat visiting Green Bay 14-12 on Russell Wilson's disputed 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the game's final play. Green Bay's M.D. Jennings got both hands on the ball. Tate wrestled Jennings for possession before one of the officials signaled a touchdown while another waved his hands.
After a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott announced "the ruling on the field stands."
