Carson Palmer was under tremendous pressure all game – he was sacked seven times as the Red Birds' offensive line continues to struggle. Palmer also had to hurry many of his throws and tossed two more interceptions, giving him 13 on the season. He finished with 30 completions in 45 attempts for 258 yards and a late fourth quarter eight-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown.
The loss dropped the Cardinals to 3-4 while the division-leading Seahawks improved to 6-1.
Russell Wilson was the offensive star of the game for Seattle, completing 18 of 29 passes for 235 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for 29 yards. Marshawn Lynch chipped in with a game-high 91 yards rushing and a touchdown.
Arizona was held to just 30 yards rushing. You're not going to win games that way. Larry Fitzgerald looked hampered by his right hamstring injury – he had just two receptions for 17 yards. Michael Floyd led the Cards with 71 receiving yards on six catches.
The loss overshadowed the best game of John Abraham's brief career with the Red Birds. The veteran defensive end had two sacks, three tackles and two forced fumbles.
