NFL won't overturn late MNF call; Tate should've been flagged for pass interference

by

NEW YORK (Metro Source) - The NFL is standing by the decision not to overturn a controversial call in last night's "Monday Night Football" game. 

It appeared Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings intercepted a pass that the refs ruled was caught by Seattle's Golden Tate for a touchdown with no time remaining. A touchdown called on the field was upheld during video review. 

Seattle won the game, 14-12. The league calls the result of the game "final."  

The NFL does admit that Tate shoved Packers cornerback Sam Shields to the ground while the ball was in the air and should have been called for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. 

A penalty was not called on the play and is not reviewable by instant replay. 

The NFL has come under fire in recent weeks for calls made by replacement referees while the regular refs sit on the sidelines in a labor dispute.
