I was at that game. Roller coaster ride and heartbreaking at the same time. While I think the D choked, the fact is the O had the ball with 4min left, and there was a fumbled snap for a loss, and two other plays leading to quick 3-and-out that could have put the game away. Still, I felt the D should have stopped Seattle, but we had no answer for that read-option. Was ecstatic when Cutler/Marshall made a miracle play and forced OT. I was certain if we won the coin toss we were going to win the game, but the O never saw the field again and that was it.
Too bad. It was mostly on the D, but the O had the ball and could have put the game away too and didn't.
