The Seahawks’ defense did their best to win this game, but sometimes Larry Fitzgerald just does his Larry Fitzgerald thing by making spectacular catches no matter how well he’s covered. Seattle’s sputtering offense didn’t help matters, either; Tarvaris Jackson has been the good-enough-for-now QB all season, but he wasn’t good enough to win this game. He wasn’t able to capitalize on the time the o-line was able to give him, and he missed on multiple deep passes that could have each gone for a touchdown. Connect on those and you have a Seahawks blowout win, not a three point loss in overtime.
In case you’re wondering, the Seahawks’ 7-9 record will have them picking either 11th or 12th in the upcoming draft. A coin flip at this year’s scouting combine will determine whether Seattle or Kansas City, who also finished 7-9, will get the 11th overall pick. Either way, the Seahawks will be picking high enough to snag some exciting first and second round talent.
