After Doug Baldwin's third touchdown catch of the day gave the Seahawks a seven-point lead with 4:30 to play, Carroll made the gutsy decision to keep his offense on the field for a 2-point conversion try. If the Seahawks got it, they'd have a possibly insurmountable two-score lead. If they failed, the Patriots would have new life.
It didn't work out for Seattle, leaving Bill Belichick pleasantly surprised.
Carroll was short when it came to discussing the decision: "We wanted to see if we could put it out of reach, make it a two-score deal."
