What went wrong for Detroit Lions in OT loss to Seattle Seahawks
Ineffective Pass Rush
The Lions’ pass rush failed to put enough pressure on the Seahawks’ quarterback, allowing them to march down the field and score the winning touchdown in overtime. This inability to disrupt the Seahawks’ offense proved costly for the Lions.
Overtime Coin Toss Loss
Winning the coin toss in overtime is crucial, as it grants the team possession of the ball. Unfortunately for the Lions, they lost the coin toss, denying their offense an opportunity to score and potentially win the game. Quarterback Jared Goff expressed his frustration with this outcome.
Disappointment after a Promising Start
The Lions had a chance to build on their previous victory against the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. However, their hopes were dashed as they fell short in overtime against the Seahawks. This loss was a missed opportunity for the Lions to continue their momentum and take another step forward.
To sum it all up, the Lions’ ineffective pass rush, the unfavorable coin toss outcome, and the missed opportunity to capitalize on their previous win contributed to their disappointing overtime loss to the Seahawks.
