Seahawks Vs. Cardinals, Week 1: Arizona Wins Rivalry Game Despite Spots Of Poor Play

Arizona Cardinals fans have to feel at least two things after their team's 20-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. Relieved and thrilled for the Arizona defense and Kevin Kolb, both who manned up when called upon to make key plays late in the game. And justified in that the officials blew a call that gave the Seahawks an extra timeout and more chances to win at the end.

As Revenge of the Birds contributor Skii writes, there are things to improve on, such as developing a better rhythm on offense and better special teams coverage after the Seahawks got some momentum with their returns in the second half.

One of the biggest factors in the Seahawks comeback in the 2nd Half was the special teams. Leon Washington returned 3 KR's for a total of 133 yards, and 56 yards on PR's, reviving the slacking Seahawks team.
