Russell Wilson loses his first ever game at CenturyLink Field
Russell Wilson plays well on any field, but at home, he was unbeatable in his NFL career. Seattle’s 14-game home winning streak easily is the best in the league. The Patriots are second with eight consecutive home wins, but today the Seahawks met their match.
The Seahawks had outscored their opponents by an average of 18.6 points per game during the home winning streak and have a plus-21 turnover ratio in those games. Well today the Arizona Cardinals came to town and really put on a show.
Arizona (10-5) had to win after Carolina beat New Orleans. And the Cardinals did thanks to a stingy defense that flustered Russell Wilson into one of his worst days as a pro, delaying any celebration of an NFC West championship. The Seahawks can still clinch the NFC West with a win over St. Louis next Sunday, and I expect them to do so easily.
