Seahawks' defense sets up Monday night mayhem

We wondered what would happen when a error by replacement officials cost a team a game. We're about to find out.

Golden Tate's controversial, 24-yard touchdown catch as time expired set off one of the strangest end-of-game sequences in NFL history. Here's what else we learned in the Seattle Seahawks' 14-12 win over the Green Bay Packers.

» Monday night was the Replacement Official Apocolypse.

» Some Packers players bit their tongues after the game. Others ... did not.

» You didn't have to be a member of the Packers to be disgusted by how the game played out.

»We bring you this station break to remind you Monday's game had 59-plus other minutes of action ...

» The Seahawks deserve credit for their amazing eight sacks in the first half, but Aaron Rodgers deserves some blame, too. The reigning NFL MVP routinely held onto the ball too long.

» The Packers can't count on Cedric Benson to bail them out when their air game is grounded. Not much burst in those legs.

» Give the Packers credit. They made the necessary adjustments at the half, dominating time of possession in the second half and neutralizing the Seahawks' pass rush. Somehow, it wasn't enough.

» One play is about to set in motion a very interesting week in the NFL. Stay tuned.
