“We just over ran it, just over ran the tackle,” Carroll said Monday after watching he film. “A number of guys had a chance. Kam [Chancellor] had a real shot at it, but floated over the top of the run. Earl [Thomas] had a shot at it as it came back underneath, and it got back all the way to Sherm [Richard Sherman]. Sherm [Richard Sherman] got nicked by a blocker and just didn’t get off of it cleanly and [Gore] took off and hit it. “We were going this way and he was going that way. So they blocked it well up front, but we had plenty of shots to keep it to an 8 to 9-yard gain. That’s what we needed to do, and unfortunately, it got out. They took full advantage of it. He hit it just right and it was a nice play by them.”
