NFL, refs will meet 1 day after Packers-Seahawks controversy

The NFL and the NFLRA is expected to meet Tuesday in hopes of moving closer to a deal that would end the use of replacement referees, SI.com's Peter King is reporting. The meeting between the two parties is taking place in the New York area less than 24 hours after Monday's controversial finish between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.

The ending of Seattle's 14-12 victory, which featured an obvious blow call by the officials that led to the Seahawks winning on a Hail Mary pass in the final seconds, is expected to be the straw that broke the camel's back on this hot-button topic that was exposed during Week 3 of the NFL regular season.

However, there's still some doubt that the NFL and NFLRA can reach an agreement before the start of Week 4, which begins Thursday with the Baltimore Ravens hosting the Cleveland Browns (8:20 ET on NFL Network).
