Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks bounce back to thwart Arizona Cardinals

Seattle – This is a flashback show for the Seattle Seahawks, and coach Pete Carroll enjoyed the show.

Injury running game. Russell Wilson Doing plays without being asked to do everything. And the Seahawks defense comes at a crucial moment to close Kyler Murray And the Arizona Cardinals won 28-21 Thursday night.

Wilson still did his part, throwing for two touchdowns and recovering from his worst performance of the season a few days ago. But he has help in form Carlos Hyde 79 yards and touchdown, and a defense that knocked Murray out three times, including a last-minute game by Carlos Dunlop.

“Our guys really want to reverse things and track back,” Carroll said. “And with all the conditions, with all the guys and out and all, it didn’t matter. The guys played well across the board.”

Wilson is flawless, having lost three of his four seasons in the last four weeks, including losses to the Buffalo and Los Angeles Rams over the past two weeks. Skid left Seattle in a tie with the Rams and Cardinals over the NFC West.

For at least a few days until the Rams play Monday night with Tampa Bay, Seattle (7-3) will return alone. The Seahawks’ move into the smoothest part of their schedule was a significant victory, with an 8-28-1 record for the next four games with the teams.

Wilson was 23 for 28 in 197 yards and TD Pass was 25 yards DK Metcalfe And 11 yards Tyler Locket In the first part. Combined with the previous four games, Wilson has committed 10 turnovers, beginning in Week 7 with Seattle’s 37-34 overtime defeat to Arizona.

In his first meeting with Arizona, Lockett had 15 catches for 200 yards and three TDs and nine more catches for 67 yards.

But the biggest ost for Seattle is the return of its run game. Hyde had a 2-yard TD run in the third quarter, and Seattle finished with 165 yards.

“It helped balance our guilt today,” Hyde said. “We could hit passes, we could run the ball, we could go on the field. You know how we play.”

Murray and Diandre Hopkins Unable to recover the magic from their last-second touchdown to beat Buffalo last Sunday. Murray scored 29 of 42 for 269 yards and two TDs, but Seattle were able to put some pressure on CB, who missed the first meeting.

“They certainly played for me under certain circumstances, but as I said, we scored 21 runs and eventually had a chance to win the game, but throughout the game, we started slowly and kept shooting ourselves,” Murray said.

And that pressure came to an end in seconds. On the fourth and 10th at Seattle 27 with 38 seconds left, Dunlop came around the edge and put Murray in his second night sack. Seattle ended the first meeting with three sacks and seven QB hits without touching Murray.

“(Pete) fired. He pushed me aside. It’s crazy to see the head coach involved, “said Dunlap.
