Packers Vs. Seahawks Final Score: Controversial Hail Mary Gives Seattle Win

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers on an incredible last second hail mary attempt that ended with Golden Tate wrestling the ball away from M.D. Jennings. It appeared Jennings pulled down the interception but the refs ruled a Tate touchdown that resulted in a 14-12 Seahawks win. The play was reviewed on replay and the refs upheld the call to preserve the Seattle win.

With no timeouts and less than a minute to play, the Seahawks got one final chance after forcing a Green Bay 3-and-out inside their own 5-yard line. Taking over at the 45-yard line, Wilson would move the Seahawks inside the 25 before being forced to heave it into the end zone. An animated gif of the play:

The amazing play ended a half in which the Packers controlled the ball nearly the entire 30 minutes. The Packers finally scored their first touchdown with just under nine minutes remaining in the game, taking their first lead.

Cedric Benson punched it in from 1 yard out for his first touchdown in a Packers uniform. It looked like Green Bay would settle for the third Mason Crosby field goal of the half, but Mike McCarthy challenged the spot on a third-down scramble by Aaron Rodgers.

The original spot, which was well short of the first down, was overturned and the Packers were given a new set of downs inside the 5-yard line. Benson took advantage one play later to take the 5-point lead. Green Bay had the ball almost the entire second half, with the Seahawks going 3-and-out on their first two possessions.

But Wilson and the Seattle offense would take advantage of one final chance, ending it with the amazing Tate touchdown.
