Controversy on this week’s game came with Bills’ field goal attempt. This was after jumping offside by Richard Sherman. Since the referee failed to blow the whistle, Sherman continued, touching the ball and roughing Dan Carpenter. However, Bills’ head coach Rex Ryan had not penalized Sherman for this. Commenting after the game, Sherman defended himself telling ESPN’s Lisa Salters kept playing on until it was blown. He added that he went straight after the ball, not Carpenter. He added that once the ball is tipped while paling, the rule that applies is that there is no flag.
After the game, Coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that this was not the performance that everyone expected from them, implying the injuries of Russell Wilson, Thomas Rawls, Kam Chancellor and Michael Bennett had affected the quality of their play. This, he added, had carried on for the past 8 weeks. It was evident at the struggling running game all along, and the continuous presence of defense in the field. However, even with the bending of the defense, it did not break.
