The Seattle Seahawks embarrassed the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, winning 58-0 at CenturyLink Field. The victory was the largest in franchise history for the Seahawks, and their fans were impressed by the team and are feeling confident about their future.
Seattle scored 58 points, but it did not rely on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the passing offense. The Seahawks only threw the ball 22 times all game, with Wilson only attempting 13 of those passes. Instead, the rest of the Seahawks stepped up to deliver the drubbing.
Jacson Bevin of Field Gulls dished out credit to all deserving parties, writing:
The story in this one was the defense. Well, the defense and special teams. Well, the defense, the special teams, and Marshawn Lynch. And Robert Turbin. And the O-line. And the play calling. And the relentless pressure both sides of the ball put on for the full sixty minutes.
Seattle completely overwhelmed Arizona , forcing eight turnovers which set up plenty of easy scores. The offense also performed well, as Seattle had two runners over 100 yards on the day.
Both the Seahawks offense and defense impressed Bevin, and he felt like Sunday's game offered a glimpse into the team's potential:
This game was a peek into what this team is capable of, and what this team is capable of is not only beating any team in the NFL, but burying them so deep that no one will even bother to look for the remains.
The Seahawks made a statement on Sunday, one that their fans will not forget anytime soon.
