After the game, Carroll acknowledged the fake punt shouldn't have happened.
"I feel bad about this," Carroll said. "It was part of our game plan, it was something I could have called off, and I didn't. It's unfortunate that it comes across like there's something wrong there. That's my fault, totally, for not stopping it from happening ... in the sense that it looked bad."
Harbaugh had no regrets. Carroll can't say the same.
