Hot Topic: Replacement refs in the NFL

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It was an unlikely win over the Green Bay Packers for the Seattle Seahawks, all thanks to an apparent blown call by the replacement refs being used by the NFL.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Seattle's "Russell Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as the clock expired. Golden Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field stands" before the crowd at CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration."

After 10 minutes, the teams returned to the field for the extra point.

The final score - Seattle 14, Green Bay 12.
