Pete Carroll Post-Show: What happened up front in Seahawks’ loss to Cowboys?
The Seahawks’ run offense that led the NFL in the regular season couldn’t keep up with what the Dallas Cowboys did on the ground in Saturday’s NFC wild-card playoff game, and that has been the focus since Seattle’s 24-22 defeat. What happened?
