Stifling defense, missed chances lead to tie

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson blocks against Arizona Cardinals strong safety Tony Jefferson during the first half of a football game Sunday Oct. 23 2016 in Glendale Ariz

Cardinals defense was the more psychical defenseChandler Jones forces Russell Wilson to fumble deep in Seattle's territory.

The Cardinals (3-3-1) played to a tie for the first time since December 7, 1986, when they settled for a 10-10 draw at the Philadelphia Eagles. "There's a certain nobility in that, even if his cover's blown the moment he tries to do Russell Wilson things - or the moment he doesn't, which is probably where Wilson's striking lack of mobility showed up most in Sunday night's 6-all tie against the Arizona Cardinals".

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians felt like there was a penalty on the play, and he plans to speak to the league about it. "Hopefully this one doesn't come back to haunt us". Hopefully, sometimes a tie can help you. Ryan Quigley was blocked by Tanner McEvoy on an attempt in the fourth quarter.

"Make it. He's a professional", Arians said. And if you still can't get your mind around the concept, ask any soccer fan about the satisfaction of a well-earned draw.

The Arizona Cardinals' season was very much on the line in their Week 7 Sunday Night Football clash with the Seattle Seahawks.

The controversy lies in whether Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner committed the illegal act of leaping during the block.

"When we play these guys it's normally an emotional roller coaster", Arians said.

Catanzaro's missed attempt kept the game at 0-0.

And how about that look on the face of Carroll after Stephen Hauschka missed?

This NFC North standstill was the first in which both teams scored in overtime.

Right now if they are not benefitting from good luck they are not doing much to thwart bad luck coming against them. Sports is a star-driven business, and there is getting to be some pretty significant stars on both sides.

"We just couldn't get in sync at all", Carroll said. Wilson, obviously slowed by leg problems, completed 24 of 37 passes for 225 yards, most of the damage coming in the overtime.

Arizona had almost a 20-minute edge in time of possession overall - 46:19 to 28:39. David Johnson definitely came through for the Arizona Cardinals.

"It was a battle", Palmer said. "I wish we could keep playing". "That's a great team, and to end it that way, it hurts". At home in week seven, Catanzaro hooked a potential game-winning attempt off the cross bar, and for the second time this season, Arizona's special teams play cost the Cardinals a victory.

Murray, who missed the past two games, finished with 59 yards on 18 carries. If he doesn't block it, it could have been three points and the Seahawks never even make it to overtime. Suddenly, Seattle's offense - which had just 47 yards in its worst first half in three years and just 83 total yards with three first downs through three quarters - looked poised to win the game. Chandler Catanzaro set up for a 16 yard field goal attempt but kicked it off the upright.

It was another in a series of long scoring drives for Arizona, however. Arizona coach Arians threw his arms high, anticipating the game-winning score, then threw them down so hard he may need rotator cuff surgery.

Arians also had a gripe with the officials after a clear touchdown was not ruled as such after his team quickly snapped the football before a video review, but excuses will only get the Cardinals so far.

Wagner brushed Brewer's back with his left foot while leap-frogging over the long snapper, but it was incidental contact and not a foul.

"My brain doesn't know where to go on that". We'll see what happens. So one can only imagine how frustrating it was to be a part of. But on a third down, Palmer hit him in between the numbers and the receiver dropped it. Floyd ended his night with five receptions for 65 yards. For a second straight week, the Seahawks were forced to play without Kam Chancellor, their four-time Pro Bowl safety, because of a groin injury.

Kelcie McCray hurried to takle J.J.Nelson at the 5-yard-line after he had broken into the open for a play that covered 40 yards overall.
