After all, they were only a yard from the goal line.
Instead, they threw an interception in a 28-24 Seattle loss.
It was an abrupt ending, and it reminded me a bit of a Dallas Cowboys game in 2007. Tony Romo was holding for a 19-yard field-goal kick, and he bobbled the ball. He was tackled, and the wild-card game was over.
Abruptly. And, as it was with the Super Bowl, I wasn't expecting it.
Incidentally, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cowboys, 21-20, on Romo's bobble.
