    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The NFL has acknowledged its officiating crew made at least nine mistakes during Sunday's Green Bay-Minnesota game, including a key pass interference call, two newspapers reported Wednesday.

    The mistakes were documented in a confidential memorandum, the Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press said, citing unidentified sources.

    The Vikings (3-10) lost the game 26-22 in Green Bay. Eight of the affected plays occurred in the fourth quarter, when the Packers (10-3) made up a nine-point deficit with two touchdowns. An interference call negated a Vikings' interception on the Packers' game-winning drive.

    Both papers reported the league's correspondence with the Vikings.

    "Conversations between the NFL officiating department and teams are confidential," NFL spokesman Michael Signora said. "We do not comment on them."

    Vikings coach Mike Tice declined comment. Team officials are prohibited from discussing confidential communication with the league.

    On Monday, the Vikings sent in 12 officials' calls the team disagreed with. In a response, league supervisors wrote that Vikings safety Corey Chavous should not have been called for pass interference against Donald Driver on a third-down pass that safety Jack Brewer intercepted.

    "It doesn't matter what they say after the fact," Chavous said. "We lost the game."

    Under the NFL's instant replay policy, pass interference penalties are not subject to review. Tony Fisher scored the go-ahead touchdown for Green Bay four plays later.

    NFL teams routinely fill out such forms on the day after games, seeking clarification or explanations for calls, and it is not unusual for mistakes to be acknowledged affecting both teams.

    Among other mistakes detailed in the document, league supervisors wrote that Packers receiver Robert Ferguson should have been ruled out of bounds at the 1-yard line rather than given a 40-yard touchdown reception with 10:48 left in the fourth quarter. The Vikings did not challenge the call via instant replay.

    The NFL also wrote that Packers safety Antuan Edwards should have received an unnecessary roughness penalty for hitting Vikings receiver Chris Walsh, who had taken a knee to stop the next-to-last play of the game, and that Packers linebacker Nate Wayne also should have been penalized for blocking receiver Randy Moss in the back on the final play of the game.

    The Vikings were called "whiners" when the res gave this game to the Pack. Something happens to the olive and mustard and its "let's boycott the Saints game". You people are ridiculous. The NFL is bigger than the Green Bay Packers.

    Anyone remember this non-touchdown?

    Good one...except for the fact that they might be busy making plans to build a brand new state of the art stadium. Not one with bench seats, bratwursts, and inbreds.

    Although I do enjoy the 2 wins we get each year from playing your team full of guys wearing purple tights.

    Yeah, but it's the Vikings, so no one really cares. And that was two years ago. Time to move on. Besides, Favre threw three picks. That's hardly the refs giving us the game.

    Besides, it's worth mentioning the bad call you mention happened in the first half of the game, and therefore did not have near the impact on the outcome of that game as this one did.

    I have to laugh when I look back at all the drama the Vikings had to go through to finally get the new stadium approved. There are so many people that don't want the new stadium in Minnesota it's laughable. I get a kick out of these trolls that come on here and beat the same dead horse (your stadium has bleacher seats, as their games get blacked out because they cant fill their seats. And then there is the "old", you serve brats at Lambeau, what are they serving filet mignon?) the Packers continue to be a force in the NFL. The fact is that the Vikings (and I use this term loosely) fans are so bitter that they can't compete on a regular basis they just spew what ever pops into their heads. Name calling, everyone else is a whiner, they always get the bad calls & the Packers always catch the breaks. The list goes on and on. The fact is Mr. Derps, that you will continue to have that bitter taste in your mouth for a long time to come. It takes something to win a Super Bowl, and that is called "character", of which you have none. I have been thinking that it was a curse living in Vikingville, but all along it has been a blessing. I can actually see first hand how awful it must be to be a Vikings fan and how awesome it is to belong to Packer Nation!
    After this weekend we are at 2 - 2 and climbing!

    I recall that game. It was on a Sunday night, about 12 degrees and windy. There was a lot of bad blood that night because the Vikings were out on a limb and we were going to the post season. Ahman Green was out and Tony Fisher got the start. There were a number of controversial calls. The Vikings exploded when Sharper picked off a pass at the end of the game and decided to run it all the way back instead of going to the ground and just getting off the field. As far as hitting the guy who took a knee the refs were very late blowing the whistle and Wayne was not just going to stand there and pat him on the back.
    Earlier in the season the Vikings beat us up in the dome. And the controversial calls happened to go their way.
    But in both instances there was no call as blatantly wrong as the one we saw Monday night.,

    Heck No! Favre's last game in Green Bay came as a Viking in 2010, a Monday night. His last as a Packer came against the Giants in the 2007 championship game.
    This game was on Sunday night. Nate Wayne was long gone before Favre finished at Lambeau.
    Mike Sherman was our coach and Tice had taken over the reins for Denny Green.
    I cannot recall his name but the Vikings had a short nose tackle with a high motor who left for Tampa Bay a few seasons later. Yeah..That interference call was a gift from heaven.

    He's talking about Dec, 30 2001 game. Favre was the Packers QB, and Spergon Wynn started for the Vikings. One of his 3 starts in his short NFL career. I don't recall any controversial calls in that one. I know Sharper intercepted a pass and then proceeded to fumble the ball back to the Vikings. Here's the link to the box score at PFR.

    I'm as confused as you on this one. But then I'm usually confused anyway.

    I am referring to the game that was noted in the first post of this thread. That took place 10 years ago. Names like Corey Chavous, Antuan Edwards, and Nate Wayne have not been on these rosters for oh so long.
    That was the game when the Vikings had a losing record and were trying to knock the Packers out of winning the division. They got some home field calls go against them and it made news in the NFL that week. December in Green Bay...Yes, the wind chill was nice and icy.
