Seahawks Obliterate Cardinals
December 9, 2012, 4:36 pm
Back in front of the 12th Man, Seattle puts on a show, crushing division-rival Arizona 58-0.
The Cardinals successfully held Seattle to only three points in the first thirteen minutes of the game. However, over the last 47 minutes, they ceded 55 points to the Seahawks.
The downpour of points began late in the first quarter when Marshawn Lynch rumbled from 20-yards out for the Seahawks first touchdown of the day and a 7-0 lead.
Listen to Lynch's TD run
The floodgates would burst open in the second quarter, when the Seahawks unloaded 28 points on the hapless Cardinals defense. Six of those points came when Richard Sherman returned a John Skelton interception 19-yards for the touchdown.
Seattle would notch an offensive, defensive, and special teams touchdown all in the second quarter.
Arizona would have six turnovers at halftime and found themselves trailing 38-0 at the midway mark.
Seattle's offense would slow down in the second half, only outscoring the Cardinals 20-0 over the final thirty minutes.
Seattle's 58 points are a franchise record.
The Cardinals ended the game with 8 turnovers and only 8 first downs on offense.
Lynch finished the day with 128 yards and 3 touchdowns on only 11 carries.
Anthony McCoy lead all receivers with 3 catches for 105 yards.
Larry Fitzgerald was limited to two yards on only one catch.
Seattle improves to 8-5 on the season, and 6-0 at home. Up next is a visit to the Buffalo Bills.
