The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks had their Monday night game ended in such a controversial fashion that non-sports related television shows were focused on the topic Tuesday morning. The highly scrutinized replacement officials made an incorrect call on the final play, a 24-yard touchdown pass that should've been ruled an interception by Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings, who made a leaping grab. But as Jennings fell to the ground, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate yes, the player that delivered the vicious hit on Sean Lee in Week 2 wrestled the ball away. One official ruled it an interception and another called it a touchdown. The replay booth ruled it was a touchdown grab, giving Seattle the 14-12 upset win at home and causing chaos to break loose on the field. Jerry Jones, who has defended the replacement officials, said he didn't see the ending because he turned the game off around halftime. The Cowboys owner and general manager also said he did not get phone calls about the play. Yes, that is very difficult to believe. "I just read a little note in the paper that the Seahawks pulled it out," Jones said during his weekly radio appearance Tuesday morning on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "Boy, that's an impressive Seahawks team. That's a rough place to play and it shows what that defense will do. I sure am impressed with how the Seahawks were playing, particularly impressed with how they played in that first half. It shows you how tough it is to win. "We've got a lot of respect for a Green Bay team. But that is pretty impressive and frankly makes me feel a little better about the caliber of team that we played up there, not that we didn't have all the respect in the world for them." The Cowboys lost 27-7 in Seattle on Sept. 16. Jones says the league is working to get the contract issues resolved with the locked-out officials but pointed to how exciting of a season it's been through three games because only three teams (Arizona, Atlanta and Houston) remain undefeated. "It's exciting. It gives us a lot to talk about on our shows that we have," Jones said. "Fundamentally, when I look at where the league is over the first three ballgames, it's great. We have a lot of competition." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
