Wilson throws 2 TDs, Seahawks hold off Cardinals 28-21

Wilson throws 2 TDs, Seahawks hold off Cardinals 28-21”

And can that unit continue that level of play over the final six games of the regular season? Arizona (6-4) has now 1-2 following the bye week.

The three-time Pro Bowler previously went down in pain early in the fourth quarter against the Cardinals. An intentional grounding penalty and a hold in the endzone resulted in a safety doomed Arizona down the stretch.

Carlos Hyde amassed 79 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries.

Seahawks' defensive end Carlos Dunlap spoke to the press in his post-game interaction.

Russell Wilson came out strong on the opening drive.

Wilson was 23 of 28 for 197 yards and TD passes of 25 yards to DK Metcalf and 11 yards to Tyler Lockett in the first half.

That turned an apparent fourth-and-two at the Arizona 32 - and a tough decision for the Seahawks - into a first down at the Cardinals 17. Arizona's quarterback Kyler Murray was leading the charge.

In total, the Seahawks accumulated 165 yards on the ground.

Arizona would be forced to punt on back-to-back possessions. Seattle ran almost seven minutes off the clock and Jason Myers' 41-yard field goal gave the Seahawks a 28-21 lead with 2:19 to go. And that was crucial because Russell Wilson only threw for 182 yards on 23-of-28 passing.

The Seahawks made a few roster moves a few hours before their kickoff Thursday night against the visiting Arizona Cardinals, including placing cornerback Quinton Dunbar on injured reserve. On fourth-and-10 at the Seattle 27 with 38 seconds left, Dunlap got around the edge and tackled Murray for his second sack of the night.

To that point, he had led the offense 52 yards down the field and had completed four of his five passes for 41 yards on the drive.

Arizona would find a way to sabotage themselves in the final quarter. He's getting in the backfield every game and he's one of the few players on this roster who can win a one-on-one matchup on his way to the quarterback, as he demonstrated on the game's most important play.

Led by Dunlap, who sealed the game with his second sack of the night, Seattle compiled seven QB hits and three sacks. He would also rush for 29 yards. Larry Fitzgerald would have his most significant game of the season, catching eight passes for 62 yards.

Being able to stop DeAndre Hopkins is no easy task.

"They definitely played for me in certain situations but like I said, we put up 21, had a chance to win the game at the end, but throughout the game, we started slow and kept shooting ourselves in the foot", Murray said, via the Associated Press.
