Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn’t play too badly but the Cardinals defense was able to sack him five times. Defensive end Calais Campbell has three sacks alone. Safety-linebacker Deone Bucannon had a huge sack of Wilson early in the quarter to force the Seahawks to kick a field goal.
The special teams of the Cardinals also came up big, blocking a field goal attempt of Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka. Coming off of that block got the Cardinals offense going again. Stanton drove the Cardinals down to a first and goal at the three yard line before halftime but they could not punch it in the end zone. That was a huge win for the Seattle defense.
The Cardinals were able to put points on the board before halftime though so you have to look at the positives there. Stanton went 9-18 for 85-yards and the interception in the first half. As for the running game, it is practically non-existent again. Running back Andre Ellington has run the ball seven times for 13-yards. Stanton had a 13-yard run himself for the biggest gain on the ground in the game for the Cardinals.
