Seahawks 14, Packers 12 – a Golden ending

Published on September 24, 2012 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

 

On a night when the Seahawks seemed more offensively challenged than the Mariners, the improbable happen. Golden Tate’s leaping, wrestling grab with Green Bay’s M.D. Jennings on a fourth down touchdown pass gave the Seahawks an improbable come from behind 13-12 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night at Century Link Field.

Faced with fourth and 10 from the 24-yard line with eight second left, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson scrambled around and heaved a desperation pass to the left corner of the end zone. Tate and Charly Martin were there amongst five Packers defensive players. Tate shoved one player in the back than leapt for the ball with Jennings. Both players game down with the ball. By NFL rule, the tie goes to the offensive player.

The Packers protested the call. By NFL rule, all scoring plays are reviewed on replay. The officials met and after 10 minutes of discussion, the ruling on the field was upheld. Both teams exited the field following the announcement, only to be brought back out moments later to kick the meaningless extra point.

With the consternation the past three weeks because of the replacement officials, you can expect this final call and outcome will also be highly debated.

The ending was a high point for an otherwise dull offensive showing for the Seahawks, particularly in the second half. Until the final drives, the Seahawks simply couldn’t get anything going offensively. It overshadowed a brilliant defensive performance by the hard-hitting Seattle defense that sacked Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers eight times in the first half.
