Packers' MD Jennings tries to get past call

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Packers safety M.D. Jennings has more pressing matters on his mind than recalling the last play in last year's game against the Seahawks.

But the infamous call by replacement referees on Golden Tate's disputed touchdown promises to be replayed over and over with Seattle visiting Green Bay for a preseason game Friday night.

It's the first meeting between the teams since last September's regular-season contest. The call turned into the tipping point to bring regular NFL officials back to work.

Jennings wrestled with Tate for the ball. He says he's always asked about the play.

Jennings would like to make another impression Friday. He's locked in a competition with Jerron McMillan for a starting job at safety.

The Packers released Charles Woodson in the offseason.
