Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
Seattle Seahawks 58, Arizona Cardinals 0
Depending upon who you root for, this game was one of two things: the worst game in the history of your fan-hood, or the best.
For Arizona (4-9), they have now dropped nine consecutive games. That's a record since moving from St. Louis. It's nowhere near their franchise record 29-game suck-fest from 1942-'45, but if things keep heading in the direction they are, there's no telling how long the streak can go.
To expect it to end this season is futile, as the team still has the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers remaining.
For Seattle (8-5), they just keep on rolling. They have won four of five since dropping two consecutive games in mid-October and are a perfect 6-0 at home this season. They are in the middle of the NFC playoff race, led by a rookie quarterback once thought to be too small for football.
The only thing small about Russell Wilson is the number of mistakes he's made this season.
He did throw his first home interception as a pro on a nice play from Cards cornerback Patrick Peterson. The pick came after Wilson had helped his Seahawks build a 31-0 lead, however, so it was no big deal.

I'll leave you with highlights of the Seahawks defensive performance. Simply stellar.
Even Ken Whisenhunt makes fun of his own quarterbacks—the quarterbacks he hand-selected and has done nothing with to aid in their development:

The game is over (finally).
Final: Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0
Leon Washington gets into the end zone as Double Rainbow continues to show no mercy.
Can't blame him. It's Whisenhunt's job to get his team ready; can't fault DR for Whisenhunt failing.
58-0, Seahawks—a new franchise record for points in a game for Seattle.
Robert Turbin with a nice 26-yard run as this game (mercifully) winds down.
Larry Fitzgerald has his first reception of the game. It goes for two yards and extends his franchise record to 130 consecutive games with at least one.
He has three games already this season with just one reception.
Can't accuse the Seahawks of running it up there. I mean, they probably had a better chance of scoring on a punt.— John Boyle (@johnpboyle) December 10, 2012
Double Rainbow taking a shot at a long touchdown pass on 4th-and-23 and up 51-0.
Always classy, that Pete Carroll.
Leon Washington continuing to run hard despite the game being well in hand. Coach Double Rainbow no doubt told his team to run it up.
The NFL is soft. This is sad. Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lays out Hawks receiver Sidney Rice. Led with shoulder, hit Rice in the chest.
Hit on a defenseless receiver penalty was called after Rice was able to cover the ball and protect himself before contact.
Arizona's defense can do nothing right today. Matt Flynn looks like Aaron Rodgers out there.
No doubt in reference to the game you all are watching:
Next thing you know, Roger Goodell will be proposing a mercy rule for the NFL just because he hates us all.— NFL Retweet (@NFLRT) December 9, 2012
The Mayan calender liked Arizona plus the points today.— Colin Cowherd (@ESPN_Colin) December 9, 2012
The Cardinals—for good reason—are being lambasted with jokes on Twitter. To lighten the mood for Cards fans, I will post some good ones.
Because all Cards fans can do right now is laugh at this. Without laughing, we all would have to be admitted.
Hauschka adds another field goal and it's 51-0.
Larry Fitzgerald is catch-less through 40-plus minutes of game-time.
Lindley fumbles after being sacked. Seattle recovers.
Ryan Lindley has entered the game for John Skelton, by the way. Not that it makes any difference at this point.
The last time the Cardinals lost more than eight games in a row, they resided in Chicago and lost 29 straight from 1942-'45. That included two straight 0-10 seasons.
It's arguable which offense is worse: the current version or the one of the World War II era.
If this score holds, it would be the largest margin of victory for Seattle in franchise history:
Seahawks lead 45-0 and driving ... their largest margin of victory in any regular-season game is 45 pts-- 45-0 vs Chiefs in 1984— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 9, 2012
Free-agent signee Matt Flynn is in for Seattle. Mop-up duty for the franchise's most prized offseason acquisition.
Skelton throws a fourth interception. Rookie linebacker Bobby Wagner. He and Sherman have all four picks of Skelton.
And on the next play, Lynch rumbles up the gut for a 33-yard score. 45-0, Seahawks.
