The Seahawks came into this game against the Arizona Cardinals needing a win in the worst way. The Cardinals had gotten off to a 9-1 start, surprisingly, and had even gone 3-1 without starting quarterback Carson Palmer, who is on injured reserve. The Seahawks, on the other hand, were coming off of a disappointing loss in Kansas City, a team that just lost to the Oakland Raiders. The Seahawks won in dominating fashion, though not without substantial resistance.
