Wilson, Lynch lead Seattle past Cardinals, 34-22

Seahawks' defense dominates Arizona

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Seattle Seahawks are dominating the NFC West.
Thursday night in Arizona provided the latest evidence.
Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and Seattle beat the Cardinals 34-22.
“This was a really cool night for our football team,”’ Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. “We wanted to get on the road and get this thing done and continue to feel good about our ability to win on the road.”
The Seahawks (6-1) intercepted two of Carson Palmer’s passes, converting both into touchdowns, and sacked him seven times, twice by Chris Clemons, who had been questionable for the game with a hyperextended elbow.
Arizona (3-4) got a touchdown and one of its three field goals after Wilson twice fumbled while being sacked deep in Seattle territory.
Palmer has thrown 11 interceptions in the last five games and 13 this season, second only to Eli Manning’s 15. 
Seattle sent the Cardinals to their eighth straight loss against an NFC West foe.
“We knew we needed to be great,” Palmer said, “and we were not great today.” 
Wilson completed 18 of 29 passes for 235 yards, with TD passes of 31 yards to Sidney Rice, 15 yards to Zach Miller and a yard to Kellen Davis. For the second game in a row, Wilson did not throw an interception.
“The receivers did a good job staying alive,” Wilson said. “Patrick Peterson is one of the best cornerbacks in the game and the guys made some plays on him.”
Palmer, 30 of 45 for 258 yards and a touchdown, was under duress most of the night, especially from the left side where young tackle Bradley Sowell struggled mightily.
The Cardinals managed just 30 yards rushing on 18 attempts, adding to the pass protection woes.
“When you get into that type of game and you get behind it’s going to be a struggle,” Arizona coach Bruce Arians said, “but we have to figure out ways to start faster on both sides of the ball. I thought we came out sluggish.”
