Report: Seahawks' Wilson called wrong play at the end

If the ending of Monday night's Seattle-Green Bay wasn't crazy enough, there's a report Tuesday that Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson apparently didn't call the correct play on the winning touchdown.

Wilson was supposed to run a play that designed for him to roll right and for his receivers to run underneath routes, Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday. Instead, some of the receivers ran the correct play and others, including Golden Tate, ran the play intended to be executed.

It all worked out for the Seahawks. The controversial result was a touchdown catch by Tate and a 14-12 victory over the Packers that drew a response Tuesday from New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.

"I love this league and love the game of football, but tonight's debacle hurts me greatly. This is NOT the league we're supposed to represent," Brees tweeted.
