With a postseason spot already clinched, the Seahawks took fans on a ride that seemed to be reminiscent of past memories. From a player wearing number 83 getting knocked down as a slant pass was intercepted, to abandoning the run in the way they did early this season, it brought back some bad memories. Ross Bell of the UK Sea Hawkers joins Brandan to talk about why, against the Cardinals, the Seahawks seem to refuse to win pretty.
The last time a matchup between these two teams was decided by more than a touchdown was a 36-6 victory in Arizona. But the Seahawks finally get a win at home, 27-24, against an Arizona team that had won three straight times at CenturyLink. With their two starting guards out, Seattle moved Ifedi into guard and put George Fant at right tackle for the second straight game. It didn't go well as Wilson was sacked six times. Protecting the punter was also a problem as one punt was blocked for a touchdown and another was partially blocked.
After back-to-back drives to start the half were unsuccessful following three straight pass plays, Seattle was backed up on the two-yard line to start their third drive. It looked like another turnover would go into the end zone for a touchdown until a holding call on the Cardinals defense gave Seattle new life. Chris Carson broke his biggest run of the season going 61 yards downfield and Mike Davis finished off the drive with a 17-yard run into the end zone.
The Cardinals continued to fight back, but Russell Wilson put together another one of his fourth quarter game-winning drives and Janikowski kicked the game winner (something Blair Walsh couldn't manage last season).
