SEATTLE (AP) – In a bizarre ending that capped a tough weekend for replacement officials, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers 14-12 on Russell Wilson’s disputed 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate on the final play. Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as the clock expired. Tate shoved Green Bay’s Sam Shields out of the way, then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession after Jennings got both hands on the ball.

TORONTO (AP) – A face-to-face meeting between top officials from the NHL and NHL Players’ Association wasn’t enough to break their labor stalemate.

Representatives from both sides said the topic wasn’t even raised.
