Seahawks Vs. Cardinals Score: 3rd Quarter Update

The Seattle Seahawks found themselves an offense. Well, maybe not, but they found a defense and special teams that made things easy on the offense and that helped get them back even with the Arizona Cardinals, 13-13, at the end of the third quarter. A Cardinals field goal early in the quarter put them up 13-3, but the Seahawks ran off 10 unanswered points and are now all even.

After the Cardinals' field goal, Leon Washington had a big 83-yard return that gave the Seahawks great field position at the 24. Four plays later, they were at the 10 -- and that's when Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice in the endzone for his first career touchdown pass.

Things got even better for Seattle when Richard Sherman intercepted Arizona's very first play of the next drive. That set up a Steven Hauschka 47-yard field goal attempt, which he drilled to tie the game at 13 apiece.

The Seahawks still have some work to do offensively, but their defense is finding a groove. Heading into the final 15 minutes, they are even during a road game. Things could be worse.
