NFL replacement refs and the Seahawks win. A Week 3 NFL quiz

The NFL replacement refs found another of their calls scrutinized Monday, when Seattle beat the Packers on game-ending touchdown play that many felt wasn’t a TD at all.  What do you know about this play and other key developments during Week 3 of the NFL season? Take this 10-question  quiz.

1. What was in question on the disputed last play of Seattle’s 14-12 win over Green Bay Monday night in which the Seahawks scored on a 24-yard touchdown pass?

The controversy on the last play was whether Seattle receiver Golden Tate had caught quarterback Russell Wilson’s 24-yard pass or whether M.D. Jennings had intercepted it. In the replays, Jennings appeared to secure that ball first in a jumble of leaping players, but Tate, who pushes one Packer defender from behind, quickly reached in an arm as the scrum of players fell to the ground. The apparent ruling was a simultaneous catch, which goes to the offensive player.
