Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Seattle didn't even need its offense to win
this game as the Seahawks dominated the Arizona Cardinals, 58-0.
Seattle's defense had four interceptions in the game, including one returned
for a touchdown and recovered four fumbles, two of which came on muffed punts
and one of those was returned for a touchdown.
However, the team also got a huge day from Marshawn Lynch as he carried the
ball 11 times for 128 yards and three touchdowns in the most lopsided win in
team history. He now has 1,266 yards on the season, a new career-high.
Russell Wilson didn't need to do too much as the defense and Lynch took care
of most of the game, but he did throw a touchdown on 7-of-13 attempts for 148
yards with an interception for the Seahawks (8-5), who kept pace in the chase
for the NFC West as the team remains a half-game behind the 49ers, who
defeated Miami on Sunday.
Seattle set a franchise record in points for a single game and largest shutout
The quarterback carousel for Arizona didn't get any better as John Skelton,
who was named the starter for a third different time this season earlier in
the week, was picked off four times and also lost a fumble. He managed just 74
yards on 11-of-22 attempts before getting pulled for rookie Ryan Lindley, who
was benched after last week's poor performance against the Jets.
Since starting the season with four straight wins, the Cardinals (4-9) have
been in a free-fall as they now have lost an NFL-leading nine straight games.
