Pete Carroll on controversial ending

"It's a very unique situation ... It was a difficult ending for [Detroit], of course. ... It's unfortunate the officials didn't know how to deal with it."


Controversial finish to Monday night game

After Kam Chancellor forced the Calvin Johnson fumble near the goal line, KJ Wright batted the ball in the end zone over the back line for a touchback. Wright's play was illegal, according to Dean Blandino, head of NFL officiating, and thus the Lions should have gotten the ball back at half yard line. Story

SEAHAWKS 10, LIONS 3 (HALF): Detroit has received a good performance out of its defense, but the offense is still struggling. Ameer Abdullah is averaging 2.6 yards a carry and Eric Ebron is injured. Three Lions sacks is an impressive number, but the leading tackler tonight, Travis Lewis, also went to the locker room with injury.
