Pete Carroll blames Seahawks kicker for odd overtime play

Their window of time to win another Super Bowl with their current core group of players is shrinking daily, and it’s clear that they need him in the lineup to do so.


“We were thinking run”, said Aaron Donald, who teamed with Michael Brockers for the game-ending stop.

“The way we look at it is we never should have lost that game, ” Carroll said.

But mistakes, misjudgments and missed tackles opened the door for the Rams, who made a field goal in OT and denied the Seahawks on their one possession.

The Rams stopped the running back short of a first down Sunday, making Greg Zuerlein’s 37-yard field goal in overtime decisive in a 34-31 victory Sunday.

On Sunday, the Seahawks had an 18-point fourth quarter to overcome a 24-13 deficit.

A day later, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the film made one thing perfectly clear about their 34-31 overtime defeat at St. Louis to open the season. Officials ruled that the ball was kicked directly in the air, so Marquez was OK to signal for a fair catch.

“The ball was supposed to go all the way down to the 25-yard line and that didn’t happen”, Carroll said. That’s been my mentality as a little kid, something my parents instilled in me … my dad … just to fight to the end no matter what because you want to leave it all on the field. WR Tavon Austin scored on a 16-yard run while lined up as a runner. It backfired when Steven Hauschka woefully mis-hit the ball barely 10 yards instead of 20-plus yards over the heads of the Rams’ first line of their kickoff return unit. Lynch’s 24-yard carry in the fourth quarter was the longest offensive play of the game for Seattle. A landing would’ve given New York a 10-point lead and iced the sport. The Seahawks did get a defensive touchdown when Cary Williams scooped up a fumble from Foles and scored from eight yards out.

It was the fifth straight win for the defending NFC East champion Cowboys over their division rival. He has 39 yards receiving, in four catches, no touchdown receptions. He also rushed for 41 yards.

Still, the Foles supporters pointed to one consistent number that seemed to not be totally related to his passing numbers: wins.

Winston became the first quarterback since Brett Favre in 1991 to have his first National Football League pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

“I’ve obtained to take a seat in there and take the sack after which run off the 40 seconds”, he stated. Kansas City recovered it and a 7-yard touchdown reception by Jamaal Charles pushed the lead to 27-6.

In his first career start, Taylor went 14 of 19 for 195 yards, including a 51-yard opening touchdown pass to Percy Harvin.

It’s possible that the media didn’t quite know how to react to Lynch’s willingness to talk; a Seahawks spokesman tells PFT that Lynch was overheard saying to reporters, “I have been available for nearly two minutes and you all haven’t said anything”. The one-on-one on the outside, and they go after you. It was clear that Chancellor’s starting job will be waiting for him when he comes back.

“Was kind of a split decision”, Landry said.

His players are also like the rest of the region.

“For me, there were no jitters or nothing”, he said. I saw a team with fixable flaws and plenty of time to figure them out.


Foles, acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason, was 18 of 27 for 297 yards and two scores. He connected on two touchdown passes with tight end Tyler Eifert as the Bengals broke out to a 33-0 lead and coasted.
