Final Grade: C-
Andre Roberts rushed for 15 yards on a reverse for his only carry of the game.
He was the team's leading rusher.
For what was supposed to be a good one-two tandem in Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams, they sure fell flat on their faces today. There were no lanes through which to run at all.
Seattle did a nice job bottling the Cardinals' rushing attack, forcing Skelton to make plays through the air. He did so throughout the first two quarters, but when the line broke down in the second half, Skelton was unable to make anything happen.
Following Kolb's entry into the game, you could see help being given to Batiste by way of Daryn Colledge (who was called for holding Clemons during the drive). The line looked as solid as they were in the first half on the game-winning touchdown drive—as if invigorated by what they allowed to happen to their starter, Skelton.
The offense did drive down for the game-winning touchdown behind the arm of backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, but the start of the quarter brings the grade down. They were flat, and the offensive line was awful at best.
Because of them, Skelton will likely miss significant time due to injury.
Larry Fitzgerald came alive on the touchdown drive, catching two Kolb passes for 37 yards. Roberts caught the TD, a six-yard strike at the pylon from Kolb.
The Cardinals had the ball five times in the third quarter. Those five possessions netted them 14 total yards. The rushing attack is failing, and the Seahawks are beginning to get pressure on Skelton.
Momentum has completely shifted, and if something doesn't happen, this one will get away.
Through Skelton, the offense has been able to move the ball on long drives. Six different receivers have receptions already. The run game continues to falter; Beanie Wells entered the game and has four carries for five yards. Stephens-Howling's one-yard TD run was his only carry of the half.
Wells, Williams and LSH have combined to carry the ball 11 times for 15 yards and one TD. Roberts equaled that on his rush.
The final drive of the half was ugly, as communication broke down after a timeout, leading to Skelton calling another timeout. The resulting delay of game penalty for attempting to call back-to-back timeouts backed them up, and they were forced to punt.
Skelton looked solid, but the run-game was invisible. Williams started the game and has six carries for nine yards, and Andre Roberts took a reverse 15 yards. Roberts also is the leading receiver, catching two passes for 26 yards—both came on the scoring drive.
Beanie Wells, who is active after being questionable with a hamstring injury, has yet to play a single snap.
Larry Fitzgerald has one catch for three yards.
