Did Packers TE Jimmy Graham really get a first down on game-clinching play vs. Seahawks?

The Green Bay Packers advanced to the NFC championship on Sunday with a 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

They needed clutch throws down the stretch from Aaron Rodgers to secure the win, including a game-clinching toss to tight end Jimmy Graham that barely eked out a first down.

In fact, some Seahawks fans will argue that that it didn’t.

Controversial final play

The play in question happened with 2:00 remaining and the Packers facing third and 9 at the Seattle 45-yard line. The Seahawks had one timeout remaining, meaning a first down would essentially end the game.
