The Seattle Seahawks took care of business against the Cardinals in Week 7. Winning 20-10 over a beleaguered Arizona Cardinals team. Seattle did not look sharp on offense, as they turned the ball over three times, allowing the Cardinals to stick around for much of the game. The Seahawks' defense did not allow those mistakes to beat the 'Hawks, as they allowed just three points off those turnovers.

Despite the turnovers, Seattle's offense was able to score through the air even without star
WR DK Metcalf. Rookie WR Jaxon Smith Njigba (JSN) had his first career touchdown reception on the Seahawks' second drive of the game.

In the second quarter, rookie WR Jake Bobo made an amazing catch in the end zone. The ruling on the field originally was an incomplete pass, but upon further review, the video evidence clearly showed Bobo got his second toe/foot in bounds, so the call was reversed for a touchdown. The touchdown was Bobo's second of his young career.

The Seahawks' defense stepped up big time against the Cardinals. Holding them to just 10 points and allowing only 249 total yards. Cardinals' backup QB Joshua Dobbs was flustered all game by the Seahawks' pass rush and completed just 19 of 33 passes for 118 yards. The Seahawks defense also sacked Dobbs four times and kept him from throwing a touchdown pass. Seattle's defense has given fewer than 17 points in each of their last three games.

The Seahawks defense has lifted Seattle to wins in two of their last three games and has helped support an offense that has sputtered during that span. With the schedule starting to toughen as the season goes on, the Seahawks offense will need to step up, and the defense needs to continue playing at the level they have been playing at. The Seahawks face a Browns team that has had a surprisingly good season with a (4-2) record to start the season. Which Seahawks will be up to the test in Week 8?
