Although they have one of the best homefield advantages in all of sports, the Seattle Seahawks were having a rough day against the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. Though they were able to keep the game rather close throughout, they were never able to grab the lead.
That was, until the fourth quarter, when ultimately everything matters most.
After deciding not to kick a field goal on a fourth down play from their own 35-yard line, down 17-13, Pete Carroll decided to send Russell Wilson and the offense back out onto the field in what was the biggest gamble of the game.
Well, that gamble paid off as Wilson was able to fire off a dart on a free play in which offsides was called on the 49ers, a dart which went perfectly into the arms of Jermaine Kearse to give the Seahawks their first lead of the day.
