For the 3rd time in the last 5 games, the Seattle Seahawks laid an egg. The offense showed up late, and the defense left early in painful loss to the Cardinals.
The Seattle Seahawks confirmed what many of have suspected for months. This is a talented team, but their flaws are too big to overcome right now. They’re a good team, but it is too easy to take advantage of their weaknesses.
Seattle came into today’s game knowing that a win would make getting a first-round bye in the playoff almost a certainty. They were at home, against a team with 8 losses already and a banged up secondary. And yet the Seahawks lost 34-31 to the Arizona Cardinals.
The entire game was a disappointment. Even when it looked like Seattle might steal a win they didn’t deserve at the end, they came up short. The Seahawks decided that we weren’t going to be given what we all wanted for Christmas this season.
Let’s just straight into my 5 takeaways from this painful loss:
Get well soon Tyler
Late in the first half, Wilson hit Tyler Lockett for what appeared to be a 28 yard touchdown pass. Lockett laid in the end zone, holding the football, and didn’t get up.
On replay, it was clear that Lockett suffered a gruesome broken leg. He’ll need surgery, and his recovery will be in the 6-8 month range.
The Seahawks are a lesser team without Lockett. He’s the most physically gifted WR on the team. He does everything right, including all the little things like blocking downfield.
You’ll be missed in Seattle Tyler. Please get well soon.
