Russell Wilson: Final field goal attempt would be better than ties

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilsonsays he doesn't "believe in ties" after his team's 6-6 stalemalewith the Arizona Cardinalson Sunday.

"I don't know. I guess it's just better than a loss," Wilson said. "That's, I guess, one way to look at it."

But Wilson had another suggestion for determining a winner -- one last field goal attempt.

"Let's say we're the away team. We win the coin toss, we get the ball on the 35-yard line going in. You kick one field goal," Wilson said. "You can't do anything else but a field goal. You make the field goal, the game's over. If you miss the field goal, the game's over and the other team wins.

"I just think that if you play that long, you're putting your lives on the line. You should find a way to win. I don't like ending in a tie."

Seahawks kicker Stephen Hauschka was 2-for-3 on field goal attempts, missing a potential 28-yard game winner with less than a minute to go in overtime. Hauschka's miss came after Chandler Catanzaro missed a 24-yard field goal attempt in overtime that also could have ended the game.

The Seahawks managed just two field goals on 13 offensive possessions against the Cardinals.

Wilson completed 24 of 37 passes for 225 yards. The offense struggled throughout regulation, but Wilson completed 7 of 8 passes in overtime.

The defensive players were drained after the game, but Wilson said he could have kept going.

"I can play all night," he said. "I was ready to go back out there again."
