Falcons Guy wisely went for the quick field goal with eight seconds left to make it a one-score game, so that he could go for the onside kick. Having already burned one very easy way to win, Seahawks Guy did it again by choosing to lateral after successfully recovering the onside kick. Falcons Guy picked up the fumble and ran it all the way back, then made the PAT to win. Virtual Pete Carroll was beside himself.
