Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, once again, came up short and lost to the Arizona Cardinals by a final score of 23-13. It was a mess all around for the Seahawks while the Cardinals were able to stick to their script and set up easy offensive outlets for backup quarterback Colt McCoy. 

McCoy finished the game with 35 completions on 44 attempts for 328 total yards. The Cardinals offense fired on all cylinders despite the absence of all-pro offensive players Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. 

On the other side, the Seahawks offense struggled mightily and followed the season long theme of being unable to move the ball consistently. Wilson only managed to throw for 207 yards tallied along with 14 completions for 26 attempts. He also suffered four sacks, surrendering a total of 27 yards. 

To add insult to the otherwise stagnant loss, injuries plagued the Seahawks once again. Up and coming rookie cornerback Tre Brown suffered a patellar tendon injury per Pete Carroll. The severity is to be determined at the moment. Running Back Rashaad Penny also suffered another lower leg injury, the severity of which is also unknown. 

This game, in the end, may go down as a defining moment in the breakup between Carroll and Wilson. The Seattle Seahawks will move down to 3-7 and are tied for the second worst record in the NFC, sitting just in front of the 0-9-1 Lions. They will likely witness the first losing season since 2011. 

The Arizona Cardinals will continue to roll on with their impressive 2021 season and will welcome back Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins after their upcoming bye week. The team currently sits at 9-2 with sole possession of first place in the NFC West, as well as the NFC.
