The Seattle Seahawks were handed their first loss on the year by the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.
It seems as though every time the Seattle Seahawks compete on Sunday Night Football, the game come downs to the last play. This was Seattle’s third SNF game of the year, and it was the third time that the game came down to the last play.
Once again, Seahawk fans were on the edge of their seat, holding their breath last night as the game entered overtime. But, this time, it was the Seahawks who blew a late lead, as the Cardinals successfully completed the comeback in overtime, handing the Seahawks their first loss of the year.
With that said, it is time for the weekly grade report.
RUSSELL WILSONQuarter Back, Seattle Seahawks
The frontrunner in the MVP race, Russell Wilson, made some poor decisions last night with the football. While he did complete 33 of 50 for 388 yards and 3 touchdowns, he also threw 3 interceptions. It was very odd for Wilson to turn the ball over 3 times in that fashion as he is always very smart with his reads. In fact, in State Farm Stadium, Russell Wilson only threw 1 interception in regular season play prior to last night’s game.
The worst one was in overtime after the touchdown got called back. Wilson was fooled by the coverage and threw it to Tyler Lockett, who wasn’t even looking back at him. Regardless, he is human and is a big reason this team is 5-1. I know not too many fans are pleased with the result, but throughout the game, Wilson displayed his tremendous arm talent by dropping the 47-yard moon ball to Lockett in the second quarter. His best throw of the night probably came from the “mini” moon ball to Lockett on 4th and 2 with about 6 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter.
