Marshawn Lynch, for the 2015 seaons, was 1-of-5 running the ball from the 1-yard line. There was no guarantee he was going to score, especially with the Patriots going jumbo down on the goal line.
Carroll's decision to throw on that down allowed the Seahawks 1 extra play, given their timeout situation. From a clock management stand point, throwing the ball was the right call. A better play may have been a fade to the corner of the end zone, where either only the WR can get it, or it goes out of bounds.
But that play ended up in an interception not because it was such a risky play, but because Malcom Butler was so well coached. Even with him making the correct read and breaking on the ball, if Wilson throws that ball lower and to the WR's back hip, no problem. It was simply an amazing play by a VERY well-coached rookie.
