Seahawks vs. Cardinals Score: Kevin Kolb-Larry Fitzgerald Amazing TD Connection Gives Arizona 10-3 Lead

The Seattle Seahawks offense hasn't been quite as anemic as it was in the first two games of the season, but they still aren't producing that much. Marshawn Lynch has gotten going with 35 rushing yards on six rushes, and Sidney Rice has three catches for 46 yards, but Tavaris Jackson is averaging only a modest 6.2 yards per passing attempt. The Seahawks started one of their possessions at the Seattle 41, and a 32 yard throw from Jackson to Rice set up a Steven Hauschka 30 yard field goal put the Seahawks up 3-0.

The Cardinals have struck paydirt in the second quarter though. A big A.J. Jefferson 51 yard kickoff return set up a short field for Arizona, and some nice completions by Kevin Kolb to Anthony Sherman and Todd Heap (plus a rush by Kolb for a first down) set up a 44 yard Jay Feely field goal to tie the game at three. Then Larry Fitzgerald got going on the subsequent Arizona drive, receiving three passes from Kolb for nine, 15 and 12 yards, the last one coming with Kolb backpedaling out of the pocket and Fitzgerald jumping over Seahawks double coverage in the end zone to put Arizona up 10-3. Kolb was 7 for 7 on that drive for 68 yards.
