The End of the Packers-Seahawks Monday Night Game Was Hilarious (Unless You're a Packers Fan)

The End of the Packers-Seahawks Monday Night Game Was Hilarious (Unless You're a Packers Fan)

My first thought when I saw the interception by Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings that was ruled a touchdown catch credited to Golden Tate was, "I'm just glad this didn't happen to my team." Holy shit would that be tough to swallow.

We've rounded up some reactions from around the web including video of the play in question:

Green Bay Packers players not surprisingly had a few things to say on Twitter about the play. [Deadspin]

As of the 1:45 am, Packers guard T.J. Lang's tweet had nearly 62,000 retweets and over 17,000 favorites.

Here's how the AP described the scene:

SEATTLE -- In a bizarre ending that capped a brutal weekend for
replacement officials, the Seattle Seahawks somehow beat the Green Bay
Packers 14-12 on Monday night in a game that's certain to re-ignite
frustrations over the locked-out refs.
Russell
Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the
final play of the game, a game that finally ended 10 minutes later when
both teams were brought back on the field for the extra point.
Wilson
scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as
the clock expired. Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way,
then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the
field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott
came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field
stands" and CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration.
It was nearly 10 minutes before the teams were brought back for the extra point.
The final decision is only going to fuel debate about the replacement officials coming off a weekend filled with disputed calls.

You think?

Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe shared his thoughts at Deadspin:

One of the main points Commissioner Goodell has always harped on is
protecting the shield: not letting anything tarnish the brand of the
NFL. Commissioner, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but right now
the shield is tarnishing faster than a sailor's virtue in a two-dollar
whorehouse.

All the NFL.com videos of interest regarding the blown call:

>>Video of the play called a Golden Tate touchdown

>>Here's the Packers locker room watching the play after the game and Greg Jennings mocking the refs

>>Watch the NFL Network break down the rules of the simultaneous catch (clearly it didn't look like one)

>>Here's Pete Carroll and the Seahawks (pretty funny)

"Tie goes to the runner. Good call." LOLCarroll

Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

What a week it's been for Chris Christie. 

After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."

He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list. 

"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said. 

(Three fire emojis).

"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Boom. Roasted.

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.

He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.

It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.

The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."

Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right? 

Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:

And:

After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:

[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
