Short-handed Seahawks no longer have same leeway for errors

SEATTLE (AP) There used to be some latitude for the Seattle Seahawks that if something went wrong, they had the skill to persevere.

That margin may be gone. Now, one poor decision or bad break may be too much to overcome for a talented team that has been beset by injuries to key players.

The latest example came Monday night in Seattle's 34-31 loss to Atlanta. The Seahawks were down four starters on defense, had no run game outside of Russell Wilson, were careless with timeouts in the second half and watched Blair Walsh's 52-yard attempt at a tying field goal in the final seconds fall a couple yards short.
