The Seattle Seahawks could not complete a comeback on Sunday, as they had the game close in the fourth quarter but eventually fell.
The Arizona Cardinals exposed some of the Hawks weaknesses during the opener, but there were some players who kept the game close. The defense was exceptional throughout the game, even though they eventually surrendered the deciding touchdown.
Regardless, Seattle’s physical defense forced four three-and-outs in the second half. The only drive that went for more than nine yards was the 80-yard drive engineered by backup quarterback Kevin Kolb.
Still, the offense looked pedestrian for most of the game, as they only mustered one touchdown drive due to a short field. The Cardinals were able to apply pressure on rookie Russell Wilson and keep him uneasy in the pocket.
The game still went down to the wire, but some players proved themselves early on, whereas others left fans with more questions than answers.
