THE NIGHT

"Russell Wilson became the first QB in history to throw a game-winning interception."

COSTLY MISTAKE

Las Vegas oddsmakers said $300 million or more changed hands worldwide on Monday's call. The Glantz-Culver line for the game opened favoring the Packers by 4 1/2. Had the play been ruled an interception, Green Bay would have won by 5.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Voices of NFL watchers

"This is comical to me. That's two of the worst calls at the end of a football game that I can remember."

-- ESPN broadcaster Jon Gruden describing the action on air Monday night.

"The play that best defines this NFL season occurred at the end of another game in which replacement officials looked less like actual referees and more like the Keystone Kops. It was bizarre enough to almost defy description.''

-- Greg Bishop,

New York Times

"Shame on the NFL for treating its game with such disregard and disrespect, and for what? A couple of extra bucks? An ego trip? A power play? You just chuck the integrity of the game into the hands of a group of Division III refs who are decent guys but overmatched in their role as replacements to the point where the wrong teams are being declared winners?"

-- Gordon Monson, Salt Lake Tribune

"Three weeks of gross incompetence by unqualified replacement officials crystallized in two moments Monday night that pushed the league's integrity to the brink.''

-- Bill Plaschke,

Los Angeles Times

"This is what happens when amateurs are asked to call a professional game. This is the result of the deal with the devil the NFL made. This is what happens when the league is more concerned with winning a labor dispute than it is with maintaining the integrity of its product."

-- Steve Kelley, Seattle Times

"Let's put it this way: If the NFL were a hamburger chain, [NFL Commissioner Roger] Goodell would have been fired on the spot.''

-- Jim Litke, Associated Press
