Seahawks Post Surprising Win Over Cardinals
Yesterday I predicted that the Cardinals would beat the Seahawks 31-13, so I guess you could say I was wrong or really wrong or really, really wrong because the Seahawks won 13-10.
The defense played well, particularly in the second half, shutting out Larry Fitzgerald. Kam Chancellor turned in his own version of Beast Mode with a hellacious hit on Todd Heap in the first quarter, and then he clinched it with a game-saving interception. Chris Clemons and Leroy Hill also played out of their minds, fueling the 12th man with their constant visits to the Cardinals’ backfield.
Even though the Seahawks scored just 13 points, they showed some signs of life. Their running game improved as the beleaguered offensive line opened some holes for Marshawn Lynch. Their passing game improved with the return of Sidney Rice.
Tarvaris Jackson did all right too, I guess, scoring on a 11-yard run that was the difference in the game. Even though Seahawks’ fans booed Jackson and chanted for Charlie Whitehurst in the second quarter, I can’t rip the guy today because the Seahawks won.
Besides, I’m too busy eating crow to rip anyone – I didn’t think the Seahawks would win their first game until Oct. 30.
At 1-2, they’re only one game behind the 49ers in the NFC West.
Or if you want to look at it differently, they’re also one game behind St. Louis, Minnesota, Miami, Kansas City and Indianapolis in the race for Andrew Luck.
