Packers: Ranking the 5 best performances in divisional-round win vs. Seahawks

Packers: Ranking the 5 best performances in divisional-round win vs. Seahawks”

Some team, somewhere, is going to make a questionable decision to punt.

"I'm moved by these guys", Carroll said Sunday after a 28-23 loss in an NFC divisional-round playoff to the Green Bay Packers that ended one of the team's most improbable seasons in its 44-year history.

A short pass and a Wilson sack created fourth-and-11, and the Seahawks chose to punt with 2:41 left. After the game, Smith described what it was like trying to get to Wilson. The numbers didn't love it. Packers coach Matt LaFleur even acknowledged Carroll's habit when discussing the Seattle coach's enthusiasm for the game. "If it were 4th-and-5 or 3 - we went through the whole discussion, but it winds up being a sack unfortunately".

"I was real disappointed that we put ourselves in a situation where we had to come flying back", Carroll said.

The Packers went three-and-out, and the Seahawks capitalized with another touchdown rush by Lynch to keep Seattle's momentum surging.

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 best case the Seahawks were looking at when they punted was a Green Bay turnover.

The Seahawks got the ball back after the Packers couldn't do anything on their drive.

The second-best (reasonable) scenario was a Packers three-and-out, at which point the Seahawks would have gotten the ball back about where they were originally, with two minutes left and potentially no timeouts.

But viewed from close range, the Seahawks were bemoaning one game that got away in agonizing fashion.

In classic Seahawks fashion, Seattle's offense came alive in the second and opened with a 69-yard drive that was punched in by Lynch to chip at the deficit.

Above all, the Seahawks faced a choice. It wasn't the primary reason his team lost, but it sure narrowed the ways in which it could win.
