Sea­hawks win, lose Sher­man

Los Angeles Times - - NFL WEEK 10 - As­so­ci­ated press

GLEN­DALE, Ariz. — Rus­sell Wil­son threw two touch­down passes to Jimmy Gra­ham and the Seat­tle Sea­hawks added to their his­tory of suc­cess in Ari­zona with a 22-16 vic­tory over the Car­di­nals on Thurs­day night.

The Sea­hawks (6-3) lim­ited Adrian Peter­son to 29 yards in 21 car­ries in a game marred by a host of in­juries, in­clud­ing a sea­son-end­ing one to Seat­tle corner­back Richard Sher­man.

The Sea­hawks im­proved to 4-0-1 in Ari­zona in Bruce Ari­ans’ five sea­sons as coach of the Car­di­nals (4-5). The only time the Sea­hawks haven’t beaten Ari­ans’ team in Ari­zona was in last sea­son’s 6-6 tie.

Seat­tle’s Kam Chan­cel­lor forced a fum­ble by Peter­son on Ari­zona’s first of­fen­sive play and later tack­led him in the end zone for a safety.

Sher­man limped off the field in the third quar­ter, one of at least seven play­ers who left the game with in­juries. Coach Pete Car­roll said af­ter the game that Sher­man had a rup­tured Achilles’ ten­don.

Wil­son, sacked a sea­son­high five times, com­pleted 22 of 32 passes for 238 yards. Ari­zona’s Drew Stan­ton, in his sec­ond start since Car­son Palmer went down with a bro­ken arm, com­pleted 24 of 47 for 273 yards and a touch­down. Larry Fitzger­ald caught 10 passes for 113 yards for the Car­di­nals, top­ping 15,000 yards re­ceiv­ing for his ca­reer in the process.

The night’s big­gest play came early in the fourth quar­ter. With his team lead­ing 15-10, Wil­son scram­bled out of se­ri­ous trou­ble be­fore throw­ing from his heels to Doug Bald­win. An­toine Bethea fell down try­ing to knock the pass away and Bald­win raced down­field on a 54-yard play to the Ari­zona two-yard line. Wil­son threw to Gra­ham on the next play and the Sea­hawks led 22-10 with 12:49 to play.

“The de­fense played lights out, other than one play,” Ari­ans said.
