Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said his team needs to win the turnover battle when his team meets the Detroit Lions on Sunday, and he specifically called out his defense.
"The biggest issue I have with our team right now is we've got to get the football away from our opponents. They've gone quiet a little bit on the turnover thing. I know that we'll do better at home, we have historically. But here we go on the road again."
With Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson and the No. 2 passing team in the NFL hosting Seattle this Sunday, the Seahawks will need those turnovers to give their limited offense the opportunity for scores. Field position will have much to do with that, Carroll said.
While the Seahawks are No. 5 in yards allowed per game, they have combined for 15 interceptions and forced fumbles this season. For perspective, the NFL-leading Chicago Bears have a combined 24 interceptions and forced fumbles.
