Seahawks top Cardinals, Kyler Murray to take NFC West lead

This time, Murray didn't have time to get the pass off, sacked by Carlos Dunlap back at the 33 - the Seahawks' third sack of the game after it infamously didn't record a single quarterback hit in a 37-34 loss to Arizona on October 25.

Carlos Dunlap ended the game with an impressive last-second sack on Kyler Murray to seal the victory for the Seahawks.

In the final seconds of the half, Wilson lofted a deep pass to Metcalf, which paid off when Patrick Peterson was called for defensive pass interference. Seahawks defensive end Carlos Dunlap was able to tackle and sack Murray.

The Seahawks made a few roster moves a few hours before their kickoff Thursday night against the visiting Arizona Cardinals, including placing cornerback Quinton Dunbar on injured reserve. Wilson had committed 10 turnovers in the previous four games combined, a stretch that started with Seattle's 37-34 overtime loss to Arizona in Week 7.

Murray admitted after the game the team were not quite on it at Lumen Field. For the Seahawks, this puts them top of the NFC West rankings, building off their strong 7-3 start to the season. Arizona would score on their third possession of the game on a two-yard rush from Kenyan Drake, concluding a 15 play, 90-yard drive. Murray dropped back 48 times in that game, and the Seahawks didn't register a sack or a quarterback hit.

With first-and-10 on the Seahawks' 27-yard line, Murray was inching closer to yet another fourth-quarter comeback.

"They just played more sound", Huard said.

The Seattle defense held their own early on as well, forcing back-to-back three and outs leading to two Cardinal punts on their offensive drives.

Trailing by four in the fourth quarter, the Cardinals had a chance to take the lead from Seahawks with a little over nine minutes to play. "We've got to be better". The Seahawks added a field goal on the final play of the half.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen ruptured his plantar fascia Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals and will be sidelined for roughly two months, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. He was unable to put weight on the foot and had to be helped off the field. Fitzgerald was just past his 29th birthday when he reached 700 catches. And without the threat of Murray scampering away for a big gain, the Seahawks held DeAndre Hopkins in check with just 51 yards on five receptions.

Wilson is the fifth QB since the merger in 1970 to post 30 or more TD passes and a passer rating of 110 or higher over the first 10 games of a season.
