About 12 hours after a bewildering win in St. Louis Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll still sounded baffled: “I don’t remember having that much trouble offensively in any time since we’ve been here. For whatever reason, that was the night that they were on it and we couldn’t do anything about it.”
The Seahawks won 14-9, thanks at least as much to the Rams’ mistakes.
“It was just a difficult night in so many ways,” Carroll said on his weekly show Monday on ESPN 710. “We just had to keep hanging and fighting and hanging onto the chance that we could win, and we did.”
The Rams entered the game 30th against the rush but but stoned Marshawn Lynch, holding him to 23 yards in eight carries. But on a couple of controversial play calls, Carroll said it was quarterback Russell Wilson who made the wrong read on the read option. He was stopped twice near the goal line instead of giving to Lynch.
