Playing careerEdit

Jennings was involved in a controversial call at the end of a September 24, 2012 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. On the final play of the game, Jennings appeared to intercept Russell Wilson's Hail Mary pass intended for Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, Tate then took the ball out of Jennings hands, but the officials ruled that both Tate and Jennings had simultaneous possession of the ball. By rule, the touchdown was awarded to Tate with no time remaining, and Seattle would win the game 14-12.[1] The public outrage over the controversial ending followed weeks of criticism regarding the quality of officiating by replacement officials employed by the NFL during the 2012 referee lockout.[2]

On November 18, 2012, Jennings returned an interception against the Detroit Lions 72 yards, making this his first official interception and first touchdown.[3]
