Officials try to sort out the final play of an NFL football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks as players and coaches swarm the field on Monday night.

AP reports: The Seattle Seahawks completed an improbable — and controversial — Hail Mary pass on the last play of the game to top the Packers 14-12. Seattle's Golden Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings both appeared to have the ball thrown by Russell Wilson as they crashed to the turf. The officials called the 24-yard strike a touchdown, and the play stood after video review.

 Confusion reigned at the end as both teams left the field after time expired on the play but then had to be called back out for the successful extra-point try. Read the full story.
