NFL Midseason Report: 2012
• PLAY OF THE YEAR -- The Simultaneous Catch catastrophe in Seattle: Not only did the worst blown call in recent NFL history end the embarrassing episode known as the NFL officials lockout all by itself (yes, yes it did, NFL, and you know it), but also it inspired a breathtaking public outcry and screwed the Packers out of a Week 3 win that might prove pivotal to their playoff chances.
No matter what Seattle receiver Golden Tate says, our eyes didn't lie: Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings caught the ball for a game-ending interception in the end zone, and Tate didn't. But the 14-12 Seattle victory stood, and two days later, the lockout was quickly and unceremoniously brought to a close.
-- Kudos to: Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins racing about 70 yards to chase down Tampa Bay receiver Vincent Jackson at the 1 1/2-yard line in the ultimate hustle play of the season. New Orleans wound up holding the Bucs out of the end zone and won that game, giving some hope to its disastrous season.
