I've been reading on this.
I think there is a major loophole here but not sure how it works. If it works as I think it does, it is brilliant.
So Seahawks did not recover. But if they did, all they'd need to do is score a FG to win. And if Rams scored a FG as they did in opening possession, that means Seattle still has one drive to score a FG or TD. And the thing is, they know they have four downs to get into scoring range and so odds are much more likely to tie the game or get a TD.

However, chances will always be easier than onside kick formation as the receiving team is not going to line up anticipating the onside kick.
