The Seahawks had the ball at the 1-yard line. There were 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter against the New England Patriots. It was second-down, the Seahawks were down by four points, and they had one timeout remaining.
The Seahawks only needed to move the ball one yard forward to score and win the Super Bowl.
Carroll then instructed his quarterback to toss the ball rather than run the ball. The run was the obvious play. It's what everyone was expecting. Carroll called a toss play instead, and the Seahawks lost a Super Bowl game that they were on the verge of winning because the ball was intercepted in the end zone. Insanity.
