See the crazy halftime finish to Bills-Hawks

Another Monday Night Football game for Seattle, another wild controversy.

The first half of the Bills-Seahawks Monday Night matchup ended in wild fashion -- and a furious Rex Ryan, for good reason.

On a Bills' 53-yard field goal attempt with seconds before halftime, Seattle's Richard Sherman jumped offsides then collided with Bills kicker Dan Carpenter, who crumpled to the ground. Officials rightly called offsides on the Seahawks, but made Carpenter leave the game for a play since the game was stopped for his apparent injury. That forced the Bills to spike the ball on the next play and bring Carpenter back on. After a delay of game penalty on the Bills, which appeared to be caused by the hapless officials' delay in spotting the ball, Carpenter missed a 54-yarder.

The NFL later admitted Sherman should've been hit with a personal foul and that Carpenter should've been allowed to stay in the game.

Seattle went on to win a thriller, 31-25.
