Seahawks Fans Are Furious At Refs For Giving Packers First Down With Generous Spot At End Of Game


Another week another referee controversy in the NFL.

On a crucial 3rd-and-9 at the Seattle 45 with two minutes left in Sundays divisional playoff game, the Packers needed one more first down to basically put the game away since the Seahawks only had one timeout remaining. Rodgers was able to hit tight end Jimmy Graham with a quick pass. Safety Lano Hill tried to tackle Graham short of the first down marker, but Graham was given a generous spot by the refs and the game was basically over.

The NFL took several looks at the play and even got “additional footage” but still ruled Graham’s catch a first down.

Seahawks fans at home believed that Graham was short of the first down and they were pissed.
