(Inside the Huddle) -- Cornerback Bradley Fletcher ended Seattle's final hope of coming from behind Sunday, intercepting a Russell Wilson when tight end Anthony McCoy slipped and fell.
The pass was low, Flether went to the ground with the ball and could have gotten up and run because he wasn't touched. However, he stayed down, knowing the game was over because the Seahawks had no timeouts remaining.
"Just being smart," Fletcher said. "I knew if I stayed down, the game was over. Don't risk anything. And we could go ahead and think about Arizona."
Said coach Jeff Fisher, "He's a real smart young man and a good player. It's a testament to him to battle back after what he went through last year (torn ACL) to come back. We were told earlier in the offseason that he may not be ready until the middle part of the season. Well, he was ready today, and made a huge play for us."
