Detroit’s last chance at the game-winning touchdown came on third-and-goal from the Seattle 1 in the final minute. Stafford threw on a three-step drop to Titus Young, who was lined up in the slot. The Seahawks were in a zone coverage, which is why cornerback Brandon Browner was shaded to the outside. Linebacker K.J. Wright wasn’t in position to prevent the quick slant, which Young caught for the deciding touchdown.
• Marshawn Lynch carried 12 times in the game. One of those carries accounted for 77 yards, but the other 11 combined for 28. He was tackled behind the line of scrimmage three times.
• The Seahawks did not allow a sack for the first time this season.
• Seattle was penalized twice in the game, the fewest times in any game under coach Pete Carroll, though two defensive penalties against cornerback Brandon Browner were declined.
