One of craziest NFL endings ever - 09-24-2012
In one of the wildest finishes in modern NFL history, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate outmuscled Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings to haul in a Hail Mary pass from Russell Wilson to give the Seahawks a controversial 14-12 win on Monday Night Football.
After trailing 7-0 at halftime, the Packers thoroughly dominated the final 30 minutes, with kicker Mason Crosby kicking a pair of field goals before running back Cedric Benson plunged into the end zone with 8:53 remaining in the fourth quarter to give Green Bay a 12-7 lead.
The Seahawks responded by driving down to the Packers' seven-yard line before turning the ball over on downs when Tate couldn't haul in a pass from Wilson with 1:54 remaining. The Seahawks had a pair of timeouts, and were able to force a punt from the Packers, getting the ball back at the Green Bay 46-yard line with 46 seconds remaining.
Tate connected with wide receiver Sidney Rice for 22 yards on the first play of the possession before firing incompletions Tate, tight end Evan Moore and then Tate again to set up a fourth down from the Packers' 24-yard line. Facing a three-man rush, Tate was able to give himself some additional time before heaving the ball into the back corner of the north end zone, where Packers defenders and two Seahawks — Tate and Moore — jumped for the ball. Jennings appeared to haul in the interception, but Tate was able to get his hands on the ball as the two fell to the turf. Two officials converged on the scene, with replacement side judge Lance Easley making the call on the field of a touchdown, which was shockingly upheld by the replay official.
