First off I don't like the rule, I have seen a few Champ Bailey interceptions overturned due to the rule even when Champ had full control and the WR just puts 2 hands on it. So I have seen how bullsh-t the rule is.
That said a rule is a rule its the right call, and the Green Bay DBs need to be ashamed of themselves for not knocking the ball down, why intercept the last play? Tie always goes to the WR even when its not that close DBs need to know this in these situations swat the ball away and you win. They even reviewed it and those review officials are the normal review officials no replacements so you can't blame it on replacements.
I don't care if there is threads on this already and watch the media is about to blow this up because its the perfect way to attract negative attention to the NFL to get the real refs back.
Also I think the media is funny, if this same thing happened and the Packers benefited from it they wouldn't make as big of a deal out of. East coast bias shines through every time.
They sitting there on ESPN all sad and speaking quietly you would of think someone died on the field.

Notice when this is signaled a TD Jenning's left hand is clearly on top of Tate's arms which is wrapped around the football...... joint possession
tie goes to the WR folks, cry and call me a troll if you want but im not trolling its the rules
Not sure if you are aware of the new rule in the NFL.. All scores are reviewed upstairs.. Especially, the last one.
Now by rule, Jennings intercepted the ball, but when the officials got into place i agree he has 2 hands on the ball.. The white official was in place pretty much while the action was going on. He may have been a little far away but he def had front row view.
So, the play was reviewed and they still gave the td to Seattle. You know they saw Jennings bring it to his chest, you know they saw Tate 1 arm it at first. So, regardless if it can be over turned or not, the ref said ,"after review the ruling on the field stands, touchdown." If it were not reviewable, he would have said, "The play on the field is not reviewable, play stands." If they buzzed him upstairs and said its not reviewable, its slightly possible he just didnt explain that part and said, "it stands"... But if that happened, im sure that news would be out today further explaining what happened with the diecision after review
By rule, that is an INTERCEPTION. Doesn't matter what the official ran in 2 hours late and saw, its reviewable because every score is reviewed in the NFL
