Seattle Seahawks defense highlights filled up SportsCenter Thursday night (Oct. 17). The Seahawks defense destroyed the Arizona Cardinals, racking up seven sacks and two interceptions during a 34-22 win. In the game, the Seahawks allowed only 234 total yards, with most of those coming during the fourth quarter. It was only when the secondary started playing a prevent style that the Cardinals started to succeed in gaining yardage.
Eight different players got in on the sacks for the Seahawks and the interceptions were made by Brandon Browner and Earl Thomas. Browner was almost able to take one back for a touchdown before he got tackled by the "turf monster" as he approached the goal line. The defensive front seven held the Cardinals to just 30 rushing yards and impacted how well the secondary was able to cover the receivers. It really eliminated any chance for the NFC West rival to get back in the game.
This win pushes the Seattle Seahawks to 6-1 overall this season. It ties the team for the best record in the NFC, but it might be more noteworthy that the team won another game on the road. In the past, it has been tough for the Seahawks to find the same success away from home, but this was already the third win in four road games this year. The next game is also on the road, as the Seahawks will travel to play the St. Louis Rams on Monday, Oct. 28.
