NEW YORK — The NFL put its stamp of approval on the still-smoldering outcome of the Green Bay-Seattle game:
Wrong team still wins.
Seahawks 14, Packers 12.
With frustration mounting among coaches, players and fans, the worst fear finally materialized: a mistake by a replacement official would decide the outcome of a game.
It came while the NFL and its regular officials, locked out since June, were in resumed talks in an attempt to resolve the impasse.
That was still a day late for the Packers.
