(GLENDALE, Ariz.) — The Seattle Seahawks are starting to separate themselves in the NFC West as they improved to 5-1 on Thursday night after defeating the Arizona Cardinals 34-22.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 18 of 29 passes for 235 yards, and while he did fumble the ball three times, he also threw three touchdowns.
Running back Marshawn Lynch carried the load on the ground for the Seahawks, as he rushed for 91 yards with a touchdown.
Seattle’s defense was dominant once again. They allowed the Cardinals to gain only 234 yards of offense.
“This was a really cool night for our football team,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said after the game. “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.”
It was a rough night for Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer. The veteran quarterback completed 30 of 45 yards for 258 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
It appears as though wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald’s hamstring continues to be a problem. He caught just two passes for 17 yards in the contest.
