Poor tackling dooms Hawks

The Seahawks are down 17-7 with 4:01 left in the fourth quarter after Alex Smith found Frank Gore for a 20-yard TD pass. Seattle CB Kelly Herndon blitzed on the play and had a clear shot at Smith. Instead of driving his body through a stationary Smith for the tackle, he tried to arm-tackle him. Herndon bounced off Smith. Smith rolled to his left and flipped the ball over Marcus Trufant's head. Gore made the grab and scored.
