In a defensive struggle, the Seahawks and Cardinals played a brutal game in the Pacific Northwest. Both teams struggled to get yardage throughout the game.
Initially a 3-3 score at halftime, the Cardinals had two field goals in the second half to go up 9-3. It wasn't until a 28-yard pass to Golden Tate which gave the Seahawks life on offense. Three plays later, Wilson found Zach Miller for an 11-yard touchdown to give Seattle a 10-9 lead.
Arizona answered back with a 10-play, 80 yard drive where they went 3 for 3 on third down. Carson Palmer threw a deep 31-yard touchdown pass to Michael Floyd, who beat Byron Maxwell in coverage. Rashard Mendenhall ran up the gut on the two-point conversion as the Cardinals took a 17-10 lead.
On the ensuing Seahawks possession, Russell Wilson threw an interception that bounced off an arm and into Karlos Dansby's hands. Arizona ran out the clock with one first down and Seattle suffered their first loss at home since 2011.
The 49ers can clinch a playoff berth with a win against the Falcons on Monday night football. Arizona stayed alive with the win on Sunday. If San Francisco wins on Monday, they will be the No. 5 seed with an outside shot at the NFC West division title.
