    Seattle, WA - In a must win game for the Seahawks (4-6), they appeared to be underdogs taking on the visiting Cardinals (8-2) who were riding a 7 game win streak coming into the week 12 match-up. The Hawks defense did their part as they always do, stopping the opposing offense and forcing turnovers when needed.

    The Cardinals would receive the ball to open the game. Following a 3-and-out by the Cardinals offense, Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense took advantage of short field position setting up a FG to take an early 3-0 lead. On the ensuing drive for the Cardinals, Richard Sherman welcomed Christian Ponder to his house with an INT to give the Seahawks offense the ball back.

    Once again, the Seahawks offense would take advantage of the short field. This time, Marshawn Lynch would take it in for a TD from a yard out to give the Seahawks a 10-0 lead following the extra point.

    Taking advantage of the momentum, the defense would record back-to-back sacks to put an end to the Cardinals third possession of the game, forcing them to punt back to the home team.



    Russell Wilson would lead another successful drive in the second quarter; this time finishing the drive with his own legs to put the Seahawks up 17-0.

    The Cardinals would answer with a 2-minute drill to put themselves in FG range before the half as the Seahawks entered the locker room finding themselves up 17-3. They would receive the ball to open the second half and continued where they left off. This time, driving down the field again capping off the drive with a Marshawn Lynch TD run on 4th and inches at the goal line to give the Seahawks a 24-3 lead.

    The Seahawks defense continued to frustrate the Cardinals offense as Sherman and Thomas both recorded INT returns for a TD to put the Seahawks ahead for good.



    Needless to say, home field proved to be the advantage for the Seahawks as the 12th Man showed up in full force in week 12.


    The Seahawks travel to San Francisco to take on the division and NFC leading 49ers (10-1) in week 13, while the Cardinals will travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons (3-8). It was a good game, Reis. Ponder was definitely thrown off by the Seattle faithful. Looking forward to seeing you in the desert!
