NFL Schedule & Scores 2013: Thursday Night Football Recap, Results & Stats - Seattle Seahawks Down Arizona Cardinals, 34-22
The Arizona Cardinals held on for the first half against a tough Seattle Seahawks squad but slipped in the second and the Seahawks went on to win, 34-22.
The offense put up plenty of points for the Seahawks but that night was all about the defense. The Seahawks took down quarterback Carson Palmer a whopping seven times while tallying two interceptions in the process to limit the Cardinals' offense from moving the ball.
"This was a really cool night for our football team," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said as reported by the Associated Press. "We wanted to get on the road and get this thing done and continue to feel good about our ability to win on the road.
Marshawn Lynch had a big day on the ground as he rushed for only nine yards shy of the century mark with 91 yards while also running a handoff into the endzone for a score. Sidney Rice, Kellen Davis, and Zach Miller all hauled a touchdown reception from quarterback Russell Wilson.
For the Cardinals, receiver Malcolm Floyd had a game-high six touchdown receptions for 70 yards. Larry Fitzgerald was held to only two receptions for 17 yards from Palmer.
Palmer struggled with his accuracy and has now thrown 13 interceptions this season, which is the second most in the league. Despite his inconsistencies on offense, the Cardinals are still hovering around .500. Arizona will head into next week with extra rest and a big opportunity to get back to .500 against the Atlanta Falcons, a team that has struggled mightily in the first half of the season.
