The Seattle Seahawks proved to be too much for the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night claiming a 34-22 win.
While the Seahawks won it had a lot more to do with the defense then the boxscore would initially suggest. Russell Wilson was a mixed bag going 18-of-29 for 235 yards and three touchdowns but also fumbled three times, including two that were lost.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch rushed 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown.
A lot of Seattle’s win should be credited to the pressure their defense put on Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer. The veteran signal caller was beaten behind a porous and injured offensive line.
Palmer was not nearly as effective as the 30-of-45 for 258 that the stat sheet reports. He managed a touchdown but also tossed two interceptions and could have been picked off a few other times on Thursday night. He was sacked seven times losing 56 yards.

On paper, the Arizona Cardinals are a good football team. They have receivers that can make plays, a defense that can win games without much offensive production, but one thing continues to hold the team back in the post-Kurt Warner era. Quarterback play.
When the Cardinals brought in Carson Palmer, it looked like a good move. For the first time in a long time, Palmer would have...
The love fest between the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Carson Palmer may be coming to an end quickly.
Palmer ran his streak of consecutive games with multiple interceptions to five in Thursday night’s 34-22 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Last week: 20 (+1)
The Cardinals are in an interesting spot this off-season quarterback wise. Carson Palmer has been as advertised. Unfortunately, that advertisement said “will move the chains, but kills you with turnovers.” Palmer is completing 59.3% of his passes for an average of 6.7 YPA, 7 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions this season and he’ll be owed 8 million...

This week's Monday Night Football game pits the Seattle Seahawks against the St. Louis Rams in a National League West showdown. The Seahawks were last year's surprise team, with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson leading the resurgence and taking Seattle to the playoffs after a year's absence. This year, the Seahawks won't sneak up on anyone in the tough NFC West where...
[via]Last season, the Cardinals pulled an upset over Seattle in the Pink Taco. Of course, that was Week 1, when strange things can and frequently do happen, not to mention Russell Wilson’s first career start. The second meeting, however, was more in line with expectations.No matter the locale – even Wichita! – Seattle has to be the favorite against their NFC West counterparts...
Cardinals got two first downs on their opening drive, which is a smashing success by their standards. Then Carson Palmer took a 14-yard sack because running straight backward is the best way for a slow quarterback to evade pressure. That scuttled the drive. The Seahawks then made it look way too easy with a scoring drive that started inside their own 20, featured four gains of 10...
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 […]
‘Ere, I suppose you saw that the team that systematically picked apart the Seahawks in Week 5, having been dominated for practically the entire first quarter before outscoring Seattle 34-16 after being 12-0 down on their own patch, couldn’t even reach double figures in San Diego a week later. The one blip on the Seahawks’ W-L record this season came against that team.
A top 10 defense... playmakers like Larry Fitzgerald on offense. A respectable quarterback in Carson Palmer. That isn't a team that will blow anyone out of the water, but that's a team that can contend for the playoffs. What's holding them back? As the title reads, they don't show up in big games.
What do you consider a big game? A big game is a game against a strong...
There are certain films where you watch it from start to finish and you say to yourself ‘some of that shouldn’t have worked…but it did’. They keep you riveted to your seat for fear of missing a great moment and even with the blunders in between that pop up you make due because the great points are just that enjoyable. And so enters Russell Wilson and his night against...
