Pete Carroll made a decision to punt on a fourth-down play with under three minutes left in Sunday night's playoff game, and his team never got the ball back. The Packers mostly kept Rodgers much better protected, though.
The Packers almost doubled the time of possession in the first half of the game, but the teams then reversed roles with Seattle holding the ball for much of the second half, wearing down the Packers defense.
The Seahawks were also lamenting their propensity for slow starts, which manifested itself once again with Rodgers repeatedly exploiting the Seattle defense to find his favorite receiver, Davante Adams. On the opening possession, Adams and Geronimo Allison ran angled routes toward each other before faking the pick and zagging away.More news: Talks underway to rescue Flybe
"I was real disappointed that we put ourselves in a situation where we had to come flying back", Carroll said. The last such win for Seattle was on November 1, 1999. That forced rookie Phil Haynes into action.
"It's tough we didn't finish it off, because I've seen so many games with the Seahawks - me watching as a fan myself - seeing this organization being able to pull things off like that, " said safety Quandre Diggs, who joined the team at midseason. Backup DEs Ziggy Ansah (neck) and L.J. Collier were inactive, and DE Quinton Jefferson left with a foot injury in the third quarter. Rodgers' and Adams' otherworldly connection was the only supernatural force in play at the end of this one. Jared Veldheer replaced him. WR Allen Lazard hurt his ankle in the second quarter after Jones collided with the back of his right leg.
