Seahawks Tie Cardinals, 6-6, In First Primetime Matchup

The Seattle Seahawks' first primetime matchup of the season resulted in a 6-6 tie in overtime against the Arizona Cardinals inside University of Phoenix Stadium.

The Seattle Seahawks' first primetime matchup of the season resulted in a 6-6 tie in overtime against the Arizona Cardinals inside University of Phoenix Stadium.

Seattle falls to 4-1-1 on the season after their least productive offensive outing of the season. Quarterback Russell Wilson finished 24 of 37 and threw for 225 yards with no touchdowns and running back Christine Michael ran for 52 yards on 16 carries, as the Seahawks were held scoreless through the first three quarters of the game before a blocked punt on special teams from rookie Tanner McEvoy soon resulted in a Steven Hauschka field goal. Tied at 3-3, a late potential game-winning drive by the Seahawks stalled and sent the game into OT.

With both teams notching field goals on their opening drives of overtime, the Cardinals needed a point (either via field goal or touchdown) to end the game once and for all.  A 40-yard pass from Carson Palmer to J.J. Nelson helped give the Cardinals a 24-yard attempt. However, Chandler Catanzaro's attempt hit the left upright and gave the Seahawks another chance to win.

The Seahawks responded and went down the field 70 yards in eight plays and had the same opportunity to win, but the same result occured with Hauschka's kick going wide left.

The tie is the first in Seahawks franchise history.
