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.
