12 Numbers Of Note From The Seahawks' Week 7 Win Over The Arizona Cardinals

Twelve numbers that help tell the story of Sunday’s 20-10 win over the Cardinals.


The Seahawks bounced back from a tough road loss in Week 6 to defeat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, a 20-10 victory that saw Seattle's defense lead the way with a third consecutive outstanding performance. Another big day for the defense and standout play by a pair of rookie receivers were more than enough for the Seahawks to overcome three turnovers on the way to a win that improved their record to 4-2.

In addition to that final score, here are 12 numbers that help tell the story of Sunday's win:


Points scored by Arizona in the second half. Seattle's last three opponents, the Giants, Bengals and Cardinals, have scored a total of three second-half points against Seattle, and that field goal came on a 0-yard drive following a turnover in Seahawks territory.


Points scored by Arizona on three Seahawks turnovers.


Yards gained by the Cardinals, the third straight opponent Seattle has held under 250 yards. That's the first time Seattle has held three straight opponents under 250 yards since the end of the 2015 season, a streak that reached four games including a Wild Card playoff win in Minnesota.


Percent conversion rate on third down by the Cardinals, the third straight opponent held under 40 percent, a big improvement after Seattle's first three opponents were 52 percent or better on third down.


Sacks made by Seattle's defense, giving the Seahawks three or more sacks in four straight games after totaling two in the first two games.


The Seahawks' turnover differential. Sunday's win was the team's first when being minus-3 or worse on turnover differential since an overtime win over Tampa Bay in 2013.


Touchdown receptions by rookie receivers, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Jake Bobo. It's the first time since 2015 that two Seahawks rookies have caught touchdown passes in the same game (Tyler Lockett and Thomas Rawls) and the first time in franchise history that two rookie receivers have done it.


Third-down conversion rate for Seattle's offense, its best of the season.

63 & 61

Receiving yards for Smith-Njigba and Bobo, respectively, career highs for both as they helped fill in for an injured DK Metcalf.


Game missed by Metcalf in five seasons in the NFL, with Sunday's game being the first he has missed, the result of a hip injury suffered last week.


Rushing yards, on 26 carries, for running back Kenneth Walker III, his first 100-yard game of the season.

75 & 9.1

Geno Smith's completion percentage and yards-per-attempt average, both season highs in what was, aside from one interception, a very efficient game, giving him a 113.0 passer rating, his second highest of the season.
