We will be live blogging the calls and rules interpretations from the Vikings-Packers game. (If you see continue reading below, click it to see the entire feed.)
Today’s crew is headed by Scott Green. The full crew list is at the bottom of this post.
Packers 24-10, final
Penalties — Vikings: 4 for 30 yards, Packers: 2 for 10. Replays — Packers had a challenge of the ball not breaking the plane of the goal line, which was reversed to a touchdown.
The Packers put this game away early and it was cruise control in the second half. Green’s crew called a very smooth game and should be proud of their work.
As the temperature drops in Green Bay, the officials can take comfort that they have the best equipment to keep warm. The officials from 40 years ago would be jealous.
Penalties — Vikings: 3 for 25 yards, Packers: 1 for 5. Replay — Packers challenged (not breaking the plane of the goal) and the call was reversed.
1st Qtr | :21 | video. Despite communication between the field judge and the side judge, neither could get a look at when the knee was down. After a replay challenge by Packers coach Mike McCarthy, it was determined that DuJuan Harris was not down prior to breaking the plane of the goal, and Green reversed the call. Harris did bobble the ball, but re-secured the ball as his knee was down, giving him the touchdown under either interpretation.
