Seahawks’ unwillingness to keep it simple costs them a game

The Seattle Seahawks, trailing the New York Giants by three points midway through the third quarter of their meeting Sunday at Lumen Field, faced fourth-and-inches from their own 48-yard line. The Giants had just generated their first real offense of the game to take the lead, and the Seahawks were desperate to answer and regain momentum. The decision to go for it was a no-brainer.

But as Wilson dropped back to pass I gently shook my head in resignation. Regardless of the result of the play, I just couldn’t understand why the Seahawks are unable to figure out something so simple.

See what's up.
