Seahawks - Home Field Advantage

My beloved Seahawks locked up the NFC West, NFC #1 seed and a bye week today, with a bit of assistance from Detroit/Green Bay, who very kindly didn't end their game in a tie.

The road to the Super Bowl runs through 12th Man Stadium here in Seattle for the NFC!

Just for the record, this is the THIRD consecutive regular season in which the Seahawks defense gave up the fewest points in the NFL.

Check out Earl Thomas stopping a touchdown, and forcing a touchback with a Chuck Norris-inspired karate chop!

Instead of giving up 7 points, it became Seahawks ball on their 20 yard line. Earl Thomas is a football god. Just sayin'.

My question is how was that a touch back? I thought if the fumble went out of bounds it went to the team who possessed the ball?

That surprised me also, but they explained that it went into the endzone, and then back out again, and a touchback is the solution for a ball that is fumbled in the field of play, then is touched by a defensive player, enters the endzone, then goes out the back or sides of the scoring endzone.

I'm not sure I fully grasp this, but it's what happened - sort of the opposite of a safety.

Here's the Wikipedia article - this is similar to example four listed.

http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Touchback

I understand what a touch back is. But I always thought if a fumble went out of bounds the ball went to the offensive team. So STL would get it at the 1 yard line. Seattle never had possession of the ball so I don't understand how they got a touch back or how the fumble recovery/touch back went to them.

From the NFL rule book. Since it went out of bounds in the end zone it is touchback. Makes sense now. Great play

" A fumble that goes forward and out of bounds will return to the fumbling team at the spot of the fumble unless the ball goes out of bounds in the opponent’s end zone. In this case, it is a touchback."

Yep. You can see Thomas very intentionally bat it into the endzone in a way that it will then go out of bounds. Amazingly heads-up play - that man knows his trade.

Yup, surprised me, too. I've never heard of that rule, but I enjoyed the result!

BTW, OP, your gifs aren't running.

Even as a Patriots fan, I gotta give credit when it's due...that was an awesome play. I was keeping an eye on that game and going into halftime I figured the Rams had a chance to shut them down. The second half told a different story...

It's basically what happened to the Cards the week before. The defense can only hold on for so long when there is absolutely no offense being generated.

It was a matter of time, the Rams had no run and going to the air plays into the 'hawks strengths. The Rams would be deadly if their O matched their D.

As I said in another thread...

I think it is going to be Cowboys vs Patriots. I dont know why.

I dont think Denver can beat the Patriots at home (denver is really banged up). So unless the patriots lose their first playoff game, they are in SB. Denver might have a hard time winning their first playoff game.

The cowboys just seem like a team that surging and are going to be having some surprises.

Of course it is possible that there is a repeat of last years Superbowl...I just dont think it is high.

As a Pats fan I am a bit more concerned about Baltimore than Denver.

Definitely some good football coming up.

I am pissed at myself for not watching the Seattle game I have to say.

They had that game slated to show here (Ram's game, in MO) but changed it out for the dumbass Broncos/Raiders, which outcome meant nothing.

Hopefully, one of those surprises is the end of the game, at Century Link Field....or, next week. Even better!

How could a Rams away game not be shown in Missouri?

No idea. Pissed me off proper, it did. Even Redzone devoted most of the time to GB/Det, which was on 4 channels here.
