NF West Recap: Seahawks Blast Cardinals, Niners and Rams Win

The Arizona Cardinals should be ashamed of themselves. They were one of the last teams to lose this year after starting the year 4-0. They have now lost nine games in a row. But the real reason to be ashamed is this week’s 58-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Everyone knows Seattle is a tough place to play. The Seahawks are unbeaten there this season (although they had some help against the Green Bay Packers from the replacement refs). But regardless, no NFL team should lose 58-0. Not ever. You guys are getting paid for this. Show up and make an effort. The score was 38-0 at halftime.

The Seahawks pounded the Cardinals so bad that most of the starters, including Russell Wilson, were pulled in the third quarter, and still the Cardinals could not stop them or score on them. Arizona turned the ball over eight times. Really? They would have been better off punting on first down. The 58-0 win was the most lopsided win in Seahawks history. The Cardinals nine game losing skid is their longest since 1944. And this is a franchise used to losing a lot. So that’s saying something.

Seattle is now 8-5 and is tied with the Chicago Bears for the two NFC Wild Card spots. They both lead the Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys by one game in the wild card picture. The Seahawks trail the San Francisco 49ers by a game and a half in the NFC West standings.

The 8-3-1 49ers got a good performance from rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who had a 50 yard touchdown run in the victory over Miami Dolphins on Sunday 27-13. Frank Gore ran for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Niners win as well. He went over 1000 yards for the season during the game. Aldon Smith had two sacks to increase his season total to 19.5, which leads the NFL.

The St. Louis Rams won again on Sunday, beating the Buffalo Bills 15-12. Sam Bradford hooked up with Brandon Gibson repeatedly on Sunday, including the game winner from 13 yards out in the game’s final minute to run their record to 6-6-1. Austin Pettis made a great catch on a fourth down pass during the final Rams drive to keep them alive in the game. Gibson ended the day with six receptions while Pettis had five. Stephen Jackson rushed for 64 yards and a touchdown as well.
