Despite trailing, 28-24, the Seahawks got the ball last and drove into the Patriots’ red zone. They just needed one yard to win it all, but quarterback Russell Wilson threw the game-ending interception with 20 seconds remaining.
This led to criticism for not using running back Marshawn Lynch, and the running back has finally revealed his thoughts on not getting the opportunity for a likely game-winning touchdown.
“Yes, I was expecting the ball. But in life, these things happen. Like I told a reporter after the game, it’s a team sport,” Lynch said in an interview with Turkish TV.
Nonetheless, head coach Pete Carroll will never stop hearing about how he was a fool to pass instead of run in this heartbreaking Super Bowl loss.
