If you’re a fan of hard-hitting, smashmouth defense, then this was the game for you. The Arizona Cardinals pulled off a major upset when they beat the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, and they did it despite poor quarterback play.
Neither quarterback played well, in fact. Carson Palmer threw a career-high-tying four interceptions, while Russell Wilson’s 108 yards are the fewest he’s thrown for in a game, and his 40.7 percent completion rate is the second-lowest in a game he’s ever had.
It was ugly at times, but good teams find ways to win ugly games. Clearly, Arizona is a good team with the way it has won the past two weeks. Here are some takeaways from Sunday's win.
