The teams meet on December 24 in Seattle, giving the Seahawks the home field advantage and weather (likely cold, wet and maybe snowy) that should allow for better kicking conditions than Arizona.
"Oh yeah", he said after reviewing video of the game. Mentally our football team is very, very resilient. "It's a long journey to the end".
Arians was livid about the lack of a penalty on the play because he thinks Wagner touched Brewer. "I've only been doing it for about 40-some years, but that's in the top five". The Seahawks' only offensive snaps in Arizona territory in regulation came after a blocked punt late in the fourth quarter on that side of the field.
How can Chandler Catanzaro miss a chip-shot 24-yard field goal attempt in overtime, a kick that would have won the defensive battle for the Cards?
RUSHING-Seattle, Michael 16-52, Collins 1-2, Prosise 1-0, Wilson 1-(minus 2).
Both teams played so poorly on offense and missed so many chances in the game that the 6-6 tie ranked as the lowest-scoring tie in the history of the league. "It felt like 100, but we're a exhausted football team right now".
"Well, that was really an unbelievable football game". You could see there (were) runs there, there were plays to be had. Jeremy Hill had a 74-yard touchdown run as part of his 168-yard effort, the best by a Bengals running back in seven years.
The officials correctly ruled that Wagner wasn't within a yard of the line of scrimmage, so no foul.
The Cardinals finished with a 443-257 advantage in yards, 23-11 in firsts downs and 46:21 to 28:39 in time of possession. The New York Jets had the ball for 47:08 against Cleveland in 2010.
Carroll said after the game he thought the snap and hold were fine, and he did not think the field goal unit appeared rushed.
Arians praised the Cardinals defense.
"I wish there was a better way to end the game than a tie". Arizona more than doubled up Seattle in first downs (23-11), almost had twice as many yards (443-257), two and a half times the rushing yards (132-52), and a heavy time of possession advantage (46:21- 28:39). There hasn't been a tie game in the National Football League without a touchdown scored since 1972.
Arizona sits at 3-3-1 heading to Carolina and a stadium filled with bad memories.
"We have been on the topic of digging deep and seeing how deep we can get this, and how real we can make it", Carroll said at his Monday afternoon press conference.
And this wasn't the only Sunday night missed field goal that has plagued the Cardinals. The Cardinals ended last season with three of four at home. Instead of kicking the field goal on fourth and a yard, Arians chose to go for it. David Johnson triied to run up the middle but got denied by Seattle defense.
Notes: The Cardinals will be without wide receiver Jaron Brown for the rest of the season.
The game marked just the fifth career regular season start for McCray, who was by the Seahawks from Kansas City in exchange for a fifth-round pick the week before the start of the 2015 season.
Even after the miss, the Seahawks still had higher win odds than the Cardinals.
Three players - Kelcie McCray (108), Bobby Wagner (102) and K.J. Wright (102) - played over 100 total plays when adding in their special teams contributions as well.
