SEATTLE (AP) — The replacement officials played a major role in the Seattle Seahawks' 14-12 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday. Russell Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the game's final play before the TD was upheld on replay despite evidence to the contrary. Tate appeared to push off on the play, and M.D. Jennings looked like he initially intercepted the pass before Tate wrestled with Jennings for possession.
