Carroll has just 2nd winning streak with Seahawks
Monday, November 21, 2011
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- For just the second time in his two seasons back in the NFL, Pete Carroll has himself a winning streak with the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle has won two in a row and now come three straight home games and a chance for the Seahawks to continue erasing their miserable 2-6 first half.
Carroll said Monday that the Seahawks' 24-7 victory over St. Louis was really the blueprint he's been seeking. Seattle used a bullying run game, some timely throws and its best defensive effort of the season.
The Seahawks (4-6) gave up just 185 total yards to St. Louis, limited the Rams to 13 first downs and forced three turnovers, including an interception by run-stuffing defensive end Red Bryant.
Offensively, Seattle topped 100 yards rushing for a third straight week.
