Harvin brought a jolt of energy and excitement to Seattle’s offense before being injured. Harvin led Seattle with three receptions and had a 9-yard run on his lone carry. He also drew attention and made Seattle’s offense function better. The Seahawks had 163 yards of offense in the first half and 114 yards in the second half, 62 on their final possession.

“It certainly seemed like he had a contribution that was obvious,” Carroll said. “He almost popped that run when we had him going on the edge, and we had that big third down play. Just unfortunately, he got smacked a couple of times, and he couldn’t stay out there.”
