Chalk Talk: How Golden Tate was nearly the goat

By staff

Minutes before Golden Tate caught the game-winning touchdown against the Packers on Monday night, he made a mistake that prevented what might have been the go-ahead score.

Trailing 12-7 with 2 minutes left, the Seahawks had a fourth-and-3 from Green Bay’s 7-yard line when Tate attempted a leaping, one-handed grab on a pass in the end zone that was intended for Sidney Rice.

The pass fell incomplete, and Seattle turned the ball over on downs.

“Sidney thought he would have [caught the pass],” coach Pete Carroll told “Brock and Salk” on Monday. “He was coming back under the defender. He had a great shot at it, so he thought he had it cleanly.”

Seattle’s defense forced Green Bay to punt after a three-and-out, setting up what would be their final drive and Tate’s game-winning touchdown.

Brock Huard breaks down Tate’s blunder in the latest edition of “Chalk Talk.”

Below is a YouTube video of the play.
