  1. Golden Tate gave a man-style two-handed shove into the back to Packer's #37 – sending him sprawling to the turf – before going up for the pass. How did the sideline official Bingo Alexejun miss that obvious offensive pass interference call?
    Love it. Go SF 49ers!

  2. Incredible touchdown catch!

    As a Hawks fan, all I could do was laugh when I saw the replay. 100% convinced it would be reversed. Absolutely stunned (and delighted) when it stood.

  3. People love to call this last-second TD connection between Russell Wilson and Golden Tate (vs. Green Bay, 2012) a “Fail Mary.” This was a legitimate TD!

    Defender Jennings did, at two separate points, have the ball against his chest, but his feet were not planted when he did so.

    What the announcers and most observers seem to miss is that Tate briefly managed to pull the ball against his chest (as shown in the video) — with BOTH feet planted in the end zone — while Jennings’ feet are still in the air (see the video freeze frame again). This frame was the reason the ref’s ruled the catch a TD.

    It is a split-second of simultaneous possession (which always goes to the receiver on a Hail Mary pass).

    The refs made the right call, even if Golden Tate got away with a shove that would normally have been deemed pass interference at any other juncture in the game.

    Jennings’ feet weren’t planted, but Tate’s were. Jennings had the ball at two points, but the first was when both feet were off the ground, and the second was after Tate had managed to briefly pull the Hall into his chest with both hands on the ball and both feet planted.

    Once Tate secured the ball against his chest for a split second with both feet planted (in the last second of the game), that was a TD!

  4. For all of you who think this is a pick, it actually isn't. There is actually a rule in the NFL rule book that says if two players posses the ball at the same time, it goes to the offense. That's what happened here, they both got possession of the ball, and the catch was given to Tate. So yeah, by this weird rule, it was a touchdown.

  5. bruh people who think that’s not a td are kinda dumb… it was an int but then tate stripped it out of the db’s hands before he was down lol

  6. had to come here after seeing all the seahawks fans complain about that first down call in the division round 😂 guess karma caught up to em.
