If you saw the end of the Monday Night Football match-up between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, it might have looked more like a schoolyard brawl in the end zone than an NFL game.

On the last play of the game, the Seahawks threw a hail mary pass that, to the naked eye and in multiple replays, looked like an interception. But, the referees ruled the play a touchdown, and Seattle went home as the winner.

The controversial decision is the exclamation point on a season full of bad calls made by the replacement refs.

For more now we turn to Curtis Conway, former NFL player and Fox Sports analyst.
