Seahawks Vs. Cardinals Score: Halftime Update

The Seattle Seahawks' early dominance faded quickly and as they head to the locker room at halftime, they find themselves trailing the Arizona Cardinals 10-3. The Seahawks struck first, picking up a field goal and they also had another field goal blocked, but the offense has been M.I.A. ever since, while the Cardinals started to find a groove late in the half.

Seattle's first drive went 45 yards, but the field goal attempt at the end of it was blocked. A Brandon Mebane fumble recovery got the ball back, though, and set Steven Hauschka up for another field goal try, which he nailed.

But after both teams struggled to look like professional football teams for a while, it was all Cardinals. They drove 75 yards on 13 plays to get to the Seahawks' three late in the first quarter and while they couldn't punch it in, they did tie it with a field goal.

Arizona's next drive saw them go 58 yards, the last one coming on a Larod Stephens-Howling touchdown plunge that put them up 10-3. All the while, the Seakhawks' offense failed to impress.

Pete Carroll is doing his best to protect his rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, who has been okay in his first game. Before an interception on a late heave before halftime, he was 6-10 for 59 yards, but he hasn't been many opportunities to throw downfield. Marshawn Lynch has done the bulk of the offensive work, carrying 10 times for 40 yards.

The Seahawks are going to have to find a way to slow down John Skelton, who is 11-17 for 124 yards and began to find holes in the Seattle defense late. He hasn't been able to get Larry Fitzgerald involved as the Seahawks have limited him to two catches, but Early Doucet and Andre Roberts each have three receptions.

Head over to Field of Gulls for everything Seahawks as they try to start off the season with a win.
