The Seahawks improved to 3-3 and moved into a tie for first place in the NFC West with Sunday's 19-9 victory over the Cardinals. It was a win that saw the defense step up and play its best game of the year, while Geno Smith and the offense did enough against a tough Arizona defense to get the job done.
In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's win:
Allowed by Seattle's defense—the Cardinals also scored a touchdown on special teams—which gave up a field goal on Arizona's opening drive, but shut the Cardinals down the rest of the way.
Sacks recorded by Seattle's defense, a season high and the most the Seahawks have had in a game since a win over the Eagles in Week 12 of the 2020 season.
Rushing yards for Kenneth Walker III in his first NFL start, giving the rookie 185 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in the past two games.
Interceptions made by rookie corner Tariq Woolen in the last four games, making him the first rookie to record an interception in four straight games since 2010.
Fumbles forced by rookie corner Coby Bryant, the most in the NFL this season, all of which have come in the last four games, and three of which were recovered by the Seahawks.
Combined offensive and defensive snaps played by Seahawks rookies this season, the most in the NFL through six weeks. Next on the list is Chicago at 1,492.
Tackles recorded by linebacker Jordyn Brooks, a team high that raised his season total to 65, tied for second most in the NFL and one off Roquan Smith's league-leading total.
Tackles for loss recorded by Poona Ford, who also had a sack. That matched Ford's career-high for tackles for loss, tying his performance against the 49ers in Week 15 of the 2018 season.
Rushing yards gained by Arizona's running backs on 18 carries, a big improvement for a run defense that had struggled in recent weeks.
Third down conversions for the Cardinals on 16 attempts. A strong performance for the defense, which is even more impressive considering the Cardinals started the game 4 for 5 on third down.
Kicks made by Jason Myers on five attempts—four field goals and one extra point—crucial points in a close, low-scoring game.
First downs made by Arizona, the fewest for a Seattle opponent since the Seahawks held the Jets to 12 in Week 14 of the 2020 season. The Cardinals 315 yards were the fewest for a Seahawks opponent since they were held to 305 in Week 18 of last season.
