Cardinals vs. Seahawks Week 14 game balls – stats & epic tweets!

What got into our Hawks?

Talk about a nice little surprise to get before we head out on our final road trip of the season. Two weeks in a row, the unthinkable has happened to the Seattle Seahawks.

We all knew this was shaping up to be an easy win against the Cardinals, but did anybody in their right mind think the score would be 58-0?

I know I sure as hell didn’t, and neither did the bookies, who had the Hawks at +10 last Friday. Regardless, it sure was nice to get a shut out of that magnitude at home.

Offensive game ball

Mr. Beast Mode himself is the winner of my offensive game ball this week.

Marshawn Lynch got over the 100 yard plateau once again, en route to not 1, not even 2, but 3 TD’s on the day.

The Cardinals seemed to be exactly what the doctor ordered for the Seahawks in all aspects of the game on Sunday.

Russell Wilson got it to my boy Zach Miller for a TD, (just as I predicted) for his only TD pass on the day, he also added his first home interception on the year as well.

But with all the rushing TD’s on the day, another was added by Leon Washington late in the 4th, who needed Wilson to be at his best?

It’s games like this that QB’s like.

No pressure really, just go out and do your thing, and run the ball a ton since the lead is out of reach.

Except for trying to break the shutout record I guess.

58 points is a new Seahawks record for points scored in a game!

Defensive game ball

There is no I in team right?

That is why this game ball goes to every member of the defensive unit, not just one individual.

The 4th largest shutout in the past 70+ years couldn’t be accounted for by only one person.

8 takeaways on the day for the Seahawks.

I know that some of them were in the special teams department, especially on the punt returns of the Cardinals.

Maybe the special teams unit deserves a piece of the action as well, what do you think?

Steven Hauschka was brilliant on the day. I’m sure he needed an extra ice pack or two after the game from all the leg work he ended up putting in.

Another one of my predictions was that Bobby Wagner would have a huge game. I think that 2 interceptions for 45 yards along with 4 tackles was a pretty significant day for the rookie.

Although the Hawks D only got to the QB 3 times, they only allowed 43 yards rushing (opposed to the AZ D giving up 284), and 169 yards receiving.

Maybe things will start to turn around for this unit now.
