The Seattle Seahawks have been on a roll this season. Russel Wilson’s amazing start led them to a 5-0 record going into this game. But despite Seattle’s amazing offense right now there have been some close games because of their bed defense. Other than Bobby Wagner and Jamal Adams the defense lacks some talent right now.
The Arizona Cardinals also had a solid start to their season but with some more ups-and-downs. The new duo of Kyler Murray and Deandre Hopkins looked to be off to a great start in these first few weeks. This led the Cardinals to a 4-2 record before the game against Seattle.
Seattle started off well but the Cardinals were able to keep up with the high scoring pace. After the first quarter Seattle led 10-7. Arizona then fumbled the ball in the beginning of the second quarter but the Seahawks weren’t able to capitalize as Cardinals’ safety Budda Baker intercepted Russel Wilson at the goal line. Baker then seemed gone for the touchdown but DK Metcalf chased him down with an amazing sprint and tackled him at Seattle’s 8-yard line.
Arizona then failed to profit on Wilson’s mistake as they turned the ball over on downs. Seattle then ran out to a 13-point lead but the Cardinals scored a field goal right before halftime to put the 27-17 score on the board. The second half started off quite slow as the only score in the third quarter was a touchdown by Arizona. The fourth quarter started off with one interception from both teams.
The Seahawks then scored a touchdown to extend their lead back to 10. At this point the Seahawks has a 99% win probability as there was only 6:44 left in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals then answered with a touchdown themselves. Russel Wilson then failed to put together a strong drive as they had to punt after plays. Kyler Murray then got the Cardinals back in field-goal range and Zane Gonzalez scored a 44-yard field-goal to tie the game as the clock ran out.
In overtime the Seahawks punted once again on the opening drive. The Cardinals then missed a field goal which gave Russel Wilson the opportunity to win the game in clutch time once again. But Wilson then threw a rare clutch-time interception which gave the Cardinals the opportunity to score the game-winning field goal.
Zane Gonzalez then converted another important kick but from 48-yards out this time as the Cardinals won the game 34-37.
