Seahawks Close But Dolphins Prevail

It looked like another blow-out loss for the Seahawks today until a touchdown on a Jordan Babineaux interception. Still dropped passes and a mindless penalty hurt the team as it lost it's second consecutive game, this time by a razor-thin 21-19 to the Miami Dolphins.
Miami raced to a 14-0 lead on it's first two possessions with runs by Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Babineaux's interception on the Dolphins third possession seemed to finally give the momentum to the Seahawks. However, a drop by Koren Robinson turned what could have been a go-ahead touchdown into a "stay close" field goal. After the 'Hawks scored a touchdown late in the game, they got called for an encroachment penalty and had to attempt the 2 point conversion from the 7 yard line. It did not succeed. Finally what looked like a Seahawk fumble recovery deep in Miami territory, was ruled "down by contact" and so it was another bitter defeat for the 'Hawks.
