2012 NFL season[edit]

The NFL locked out its officials in June. As a result, the first three weeks of the season were played with replacement officials. The lack of regular officials came to a head in the Week 3 Monday night game between Green Bay and Seattle. The game was a defensive affair as Packers led 12-7 in the closing moments of the game. On the final play Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw a Hail Mary pass toward the end zone. Seattle receiver Golden Tate and Packers defender M. D. Jennings each grabbed hold of the ball. In the process, one official signaled touchdown while another signaled touchback. Simultaneous possession was the final ruling which gave Seattle the touchdown and the win. However, the nearby officials missed Tate pushing Cornerback Sam Shields with both hands and causing a pass interference penalty in the process. The game's aftermath included major discussion and focus on the play forcing the NFL to reach a settlement with the regular officials. The loss also hurt the Packers in the playoff race as the team finished 11-5 behind the 11-4-1 San Francisco 49ers The loss mattered as Green Bay had to travel to San Francisco in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. A win would have assured a 1st round bye for Green Bay.

Controversy also hit MNF later in the season as the San Diego Chargers were accused of using a banned substance during their October 15 game with the Denver Broncos. It was later revealed to be Gorilla Glue a legal substance later banned by the NFL.

2013 NFL season[edit]

The October 21 game between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants was notable because it featured Quarterback Josh Freeman scoring a 40.6 passer rating in the game. He was 20 for 53 passing with 190 yards and the only Vikings score came on a 1st quarter punt return touchdown. In contrast, Eli Manning had a good day for the Giants with a touchdown pass to cap a long 2nd quarter drive.

ESPN employee and former Chicago Bears Tight End and head Coach Mike Ditka had his number retired at halftime of the December 9 game vs the Dallas Cowboys. Though the game was a blowout in favor of Chicago, it is more notable for its temperature which was 8 °F and featured a -12 degree wind chill.

The December 2 game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks in Seattle was a much hyped game because of the high powered Saints offense led by quarterback Drew Brees was taking the ferocious defense of the Seahawks with the Legion of Boom. The game, however was a dud with the Seahawks winning 34-7.

The December 23 game between the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco 49ers was the last game ever at Candlestick Park.
