Seahawks' struggles continue in loss to Cardinals
The Seahawks' playoff hopes are all but shot after another dispiriting defeat at Lumen Field on Sunday, Nov. 21, this to the Colt McCoy-led Arizona Cardinals.
NFC West leading Arizona (9-2) emerged with a 23-13 win, one that deepens the hole Seattle finds itself in. At 3-7, Seattle is only better than winless Detroit in the NFC, and two full games back of third-place San Francisco in the NFC West. The seven losses match the most in a season for Seattle since Russell Wilson took over at quarterback in 2012.
Seattle's offense has no mojo. The Seahawks were held under 300 yards (266) for the fourth game in a row. Wilson completed 14 of 26 throws for 207 of those yards but was sacked four times. Converting 2 of 10 third downs didn't help.
McCoy, who also beat the Hawks in Seattle as the New York Giants' quarterback last season, completed 35 of 44 throws for 328 yards and a pair of scores to tight end Zach Ertz.
The Seahawks will attempt to find some answers for their offensive woes before playing on the national stage the next two weeks, Monday, Nov. 29, at Washington and on Sunday Night Football on Dec. 5 when San Francisco visits Lumen Field.
