Seahawks Defeat Packers on Controversial Play in Endzone

Nobody misses the NFL's regular officials more right now than the Green Bay Packers and their fans.

The Seattle Seahawks pulled out a 14-12 win over the Packers on Russell Wilson's disputed 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the game's final play on Monday.  Tate appeared to push off on the play in the endzone and Green Bay's M.D. Jennings got both hands on the ball.  But 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."

The Seahawks are 2-1 following their second straight win.  The 1-2 Packers already have one more loss than they had the entire 2011 season.
