Seahawks defeat Cardinals; improve to 6-1 on season
- Updated: October 18, 2013
GLENDALE, Ariz.– The Seahawks defense forced two interceptions, and had seven sacks on Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals, and cemented themselves as one of the best teams in the NFC. Pete Carroll and the entire team, would say that they’re the best team in the NFC, and their play is backing that.
With the win, Seattle is off to their best start in franchise history at 6-1, while Arizona continues to struggle. The Cardinals are now 3-4 on the season, and quarterback Carson Palmer’s 13 interceptions on the season, are second highest in the league. This was also Arizona’s eight consecutive loss to an NFC West divisional opponent.
While Palmer’s struggles continued, Russell Wilson’s success continued. Wilson was 18-29, for 235 yards, and three touchdowns, with no interceptions. Added in was Marshawn Lynch’s 91 yards on 21 carries for one touchdown, and the box score ended with a final 34-22.
It’s a tale of two teams headed in total opposite directions, the Seahawks will now get a long rest before their Monday Night matchup against the St. Louis Rams. Arizona will now prepare themselves for the struggling Atlanta Falcons in week 8.
Not all was horrible for the Cardinals and their defense, as made several plays getting two forced fumbles on Wilson. Even more exciting, defensive end Calais Campbell, who was taken off a stretcher against San Francisco in Week 6, had 8 tackles and one fumble recovery.
