While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay.

Referee Wayne Elliott determined that no indisputable visual evidence existed to overturn the call on the field, and as a result, the on-field ruling of touchdown stood. The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review.

The result of the game is final.

Surely, these fans will be mollified by the league's response.

Doug Farrar, Kevin SeifertMike Sando, Tom LeyLindsay Jones, and Alex Marvez analyze the league's statement.

Plus, reaction to the call from Bill Barnwell, Mike Lombardi, Mike SilverPeter King, Don Banks, Greg Bishop, Jason Whitlock, and Bill Simmons.
