Colts lower the Boom

(Continued)

"There was time to see it you could stop it, he is on, he is laying down and the ball was secure, but (the officials) could not determine that the ball was secure," Carroll said. "So that is the way that they saw it, and that is the way it goes."

Luck answered quickly.

After Seattle punted from the Colts' 48-yard line, Trent Richardson broke through for 2 yards on third-and-1 to give Indianapolis its intial first down of the game.

On the next snap, Luck saw Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman sitting on the out route against Hilton. The receiver released deep and took off down the sideline. Luck hit him in stride, and Hilton made a quick juke on safety Earl Thomas before gliding into the end zone for a 73-yard score.

"When T.Y. is running fast, not many guys can catch him," Luck said. "He had some space. The line did a great job protecting. In those situations, give him a ball that he doesn't have to slow down for and see what happens. When he gets the ball in his hands, good things happen. It turns into a punt return. When he starts running, good things happen."

The touchdown seemed to spark the Colts, and they took the lead for the first time early in the second quarter. Lawrence Guy blocked a 48-yard field goal attempt, and Delano Howell raced with the loose ball 61 yards for a touchdown and a 14-12 lead.

"It definitely gave us some momentum," Howell said. "We never stopped believing. We understood that we were going to have to play for 60 minutes. So it was definitely a big play, and it was a team effort."

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson — who finished 15-of-31 for 210 yards with two scores and one interception and also rushed 13 times for 102 yards — coolly answered with a 12-play, 82-yard scoring drive. His 28-yard pass to a diving Jermaine Kearse gave the Seahawks a 19-14 lead.
