The Seahawks Beat the Packers with the 'Fail Mary' a Year Ago

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 25, 2013

Remember the replacement refs? On Sept. 24, 2012, they officiated their last NFL game of the season after the "Fail Mary," Russell Wilson's last-gasp pass to Golden Tate that was ruled a touchdown to give the Seahawks a 14-12 victory on Monday Night Football.

The catch was controversial for a number of reasons, including a lack of a pass interference call on Tate and the fact that officials made differing calls on the play. 

Let's just remember that this is how it was just a year ago when the urge to complain about NFL officiating arises.
