Through 3 Quarters
Only one more quarter stands between the Seattle Seahawks and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. They have emerged as the frontrunner and are ahead of the Arizona Cardinals 23-14. QB Russell Wilson has led the way so far for Seattle, as he has passed for two TDs and 162 yards on 21 attempts in addition to picking up 36 yards on the ground.
The Seahawks have been riding high on the performance of Wilson, who has passed for two TDs and 162 yards on 21 attempts in addition to picking up 36 yards on the ground. Wilson hadn't helped his team much against the Los Angeles Rams last week, so this is a nice turnaround for him.
Seattle is struggling to protect the pocket and have allowed three sacks. They are going to have to protect Wilson better if they want to hold on to their lead.
