So far the Cardinal defense looks a step slow, having early issues stopping the run and a crafty Russell Wilson.

Miss tackles and busted coverage has the Cardinals down 14-0 early in the second quarter, and the Seahawks also controlling time of possession, with two long drives of eighty three yards and seventy three.

It was suppose to be an advantage to the Cards without having to deal with a dynamic athletic tight end, but the tight end position is ripping apart the Cardinal secondary, and no significant pressure on Wilson, the safety position is struggling to cover anyone.

If the Cards do not get pressure and slow down the run its going to be a long night, and this makes it 72 unanswered points to the Seahawks going back to the 58-0 blow out last year
