Seattle Seahawks Win in Dominating Fashion
The Seahawks won by a 58-point margin shutting out the division rival with every facet of their game succeeding at a high level.
Seattle saw points from both their offense as well as their defense as they earned their first win the NFC West.
The Seahawks finally got a breakout performance from their star running back in Marshawn Lynch after a few weeks of under achieving.
Lynch averaged over 10-yards a carry on his way to totaling 128-yards on the ground with three touchdowns. Lynch proved his is still one of the most explosive parts of this offense. The star running’s performance came at an important time as they Seahawks are closing in on the NFC West title and a playoff berth.
With such success in the run game, less pressure was put on the rookie quarterback Russell Wilson to perform like he has over the last few weeks. Wilson still threw for 148-yards and a touchdown with 105 of those yards going to wide receiver Anthony McCoy.
Wilson and Seattle’s offense are continuing to perform each week and if this streak can continue, the Seahawks will be a huge threat in the playoffs. Along with the offense dominating, the defense gave possibly an even more impressive performance.
The defense of Seattle shut out the Cardinals along with totaling eight takeaways and two defensive scores.
Appealing the suspension paid off for cornerback Richard Sherman who recorded two interceptions including a return for a touchdown while rookie linebacker Bobby Wagner recorded two interceptions of his own. Seattle also came up with four fumbles including one returned for a touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith.
Seattle is playing at a very high level and proved this Sunday that they could be a real contender when it comes time for the playoffs. The Seahawks have three more games including one at home against the current division leader, San Francisco 49res.
The Seahawks are in a prime spot to steal the spotlight away from the Niners and show the rest of the league that they are a threat to go far in the postseason. If Seattle can stay hot and play as well as they have been, they will have no problem making a mark this January.
Players like Lynch and Wager need to take their performances into every game this season and show that the Seahawks not only belong in the conversation of the NFC West, but the NFC Championship as well.
