After a crushing Week 5 loss in the hands of the Saints, in which the Seahawks were run over hard, Seattle had to regroup quickly and find a way to get back in the win column in Week 6. A much-needed victory by the Seattle Seahawks proved they could get back on the horse and go toe to toe with its division rival. But Week 6 showed us Seattle could also win a defensive ball game.
Coming into the Week 6 showdown against the Cardinals, the Seahawks were having difficulty stopping anyone from the ground. This forces the Seahawks offense to try to keep up on their end. Giving up points in bunches through the ground is something head coach Pete Carroll had to immediately fix before it’s too late.
The Seahawks responded well this week, not only in stopping the Cardinals’ running game, but also they were able to stop them through the air. A rare low-scoring game that we have not seen from Seattle this season, which the team is hoping can continue throughout the season. The Seahawks must find a way to keep winning ugly games like this to be able to stay in contention within its division.
