NFL Scores, Week 11: Seattle Seahawks Use Strong Second Half To Drop Cardinals, 36-18

The Seattle Seahawks finally stapped a streak of dismal games, dropping the Arizona Cardinals on the road, 36-18. The Seahawks were completely inept in the red zone and in short-yardage situations, but still managed to survive and hang-on for the win. Olindo Mare kicked five field goals in the win, the second time he’s accomplished that feat against the Cardinals. Up a touchdown at the half, the Seahawks poured it on, forcing turnovers to secure a short field in the second half.

Matt Hasselbeck had a banner day returning from a concussion, throwing for 333 yards and a touchdown. Justing Forsett rushed for 64 yards and a late touchdown to seal the game. Marshawn Lynch also added a touchdown in the run game. Mike Williams, just days after suffering a compound finger dislocation, caught 11 passes for 145 yards. Deon Butler added a 63 yard touchdown in the first half.

Derek Anderson did all he could for the Cardinals, but still came up short. Anderson threw for 322 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Steve Breaston caught four passes for 98 yards and Larry Fitzgerald added 91 yards receiving. Tim Hightower also ran for a touchdown.

The Seahawks take over first place in the NFC West with the win, improving 5-4 on the year. The Cardinals fell to 3-6. Seattle heads to New Orleans to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Saints next week while the Cardinals take-on the Kansas City Chiefs.
