RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Pete Carroll called it a textbook example of how the Seattle Seahawks want to close out a victory, with the ball in their hands and the final seconds ticking away.
It only came after Carroll watched Adrian Peterson gash his defense for the entire first half.
The Seahawks' 30-20 win over Minnesota on Sunday snapped Seattle's two-game losing streak and continued its run of success at home. Thanks to the running of Marshawn Lynch, overshadowed at times by Peterson, the Seahawks (5-4) were able to control the ball for nearly the final 12 minutes, never giving Minnesota a chance to rally.
Lynch rushed for 124 yards, including 69 in the second half. While his running allowed Seattle to control the clock, its defense made adjustments to try and contain Peterson, who finished with 182 yards.
