Winner: Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks
The game no one wanted to win. That was proven too as the Cardinals and Seahawks finished in a 6-6 tie. Not only was it a tie, but neither team managed to find the end zone over five full quarters of football.
To be fair both defenses came in and played lights out, although the Cardinals were able to move the ball much better than the Seahawks most of the night.
The game was showcased on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Great. The entire nation got to see this laugher.
The Cardinals had a field goal blocked by Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner. It appeared he used leverage to jump the center but he only grazed him and did not use leverage. The block was ruled legal. That didn’t stop Cardinals coach Bruce Arians from trying to challenge.
Sorry Bruce, you can’t challenge that. You lose a timeout.
Then in overtime, Cardinals running back David Johnson missed scoring a touchdown by about a half-yard. They ran it with him on second down, only to try the game-winning field goal on third. Missed. What? I wish I was making this up.
Seattle got another chance, went down the field and set up a field goal attempt for kicker Steven Hauschka. It would be the last play of the game. It was a 28-yard attempt. No good. All you could do at that point was laugh.
