Seahawks Lament Missed Opportunities on the Road

For the Seahawks, it is yet another week after a road loss – this time to the Miami Dolphins.

The ‘Hawks are an impressive 5-0 playing at CenturyLink Field this season, but a dismal 1-5 on the road. After dropping Sunday's game by a last-second field goal, Seattle is lamenting all the missed opportunities.

"We were really close again," said coach Pete Carroll. "We had a chance on offense and we had a chance on defense to close this thing out and didn't get it done. I can't imagine if anybody can be in more close games on the road than we've been."

"We've got some great games coming up,"said quarterback Russell Wilson. "We're going in on the road again and playing in Chicago. That's going to be a huge game in front of a tough crowd, against a great, great team… and a great defense. We're going to have to play out best."

Carroll believes he will have his starting cornerbacks, Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, available this weekend despite their suspensions for allegedly violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The two players are in the process of appealing the suspension. Browner says he did nothing wrong and his agent says he has no idea how any "illegal substance could have gotten into his system."

There is no word yet on when the league will hear the players' appeals.
