Packers-Seahawks Controversial Ending on ‘Monday Night Football’ Sends Athletes, Others Into Twitter Frenzy

You probably heard by now, but the NFL has a bit of a problem on its hands. That problem got much worse on Monday night.

Building on an already obvious issue when it comes to the NFL’s replacement referees, Monday night’s Packers-Seahawks game was decided on a controversial play in which the officials made the wrong call. Even upon further review, the call was upheld, which the Packers — as you’d expect — aren’t thrilled about.

The play occurred as time expired. The Seahawks were trailing 12-7 when quarterback Russell Wilson delivered a Hail Mary into the end zone. Both Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate and Packers safety M.D. Jennings came down with the ball, but the officials determined that it was a touchdown, handing Seattle a victory.

That call upset not just the Packers, but people all over the country who are now questioning the integrity of the NFL. Even other high profile athletes and entertainers, such as LeBron James and Lil Wayne, chimed in about the controversial ending.
