Two-minute drill: Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0
Tight end Anthony McCoy became the first Seahawk to surpass 100 yards receiving in a game this season. He caught three passes for 105 yards, including a 67-yarder that is Seattle's longest completion of the year.
Play of the game
NFL teams are prohibited from returning a muffed punt. They are not, however, prohibited from recovering a muffed punt in the end zone, which is exactly what linebacker Malcolm Smith did in the second quarter. The Cardinals' Patrick Peterson -- who scored on four punt returns last season -- failed to catch Seattle's punt cleanly, failed to recover it as he battled for the ball against the Seahawks' Jeremy Lane. The ball bounced up to Smith who caught it in the end zone for Seattle's fourth touchdown of the game.
Too bad the NFL doesn't give out assists for interceptions because linebacker K.J. Wright and cornerback Walter Thurmond each deserved one for linebacker Bobby Wagner's fist-quarter interception. The Cardinals had the ball, third-and-2 at the Seattle 37 when quarterback John Skelton threw a pass to Larry Fitzgerald only to have Wright knocked the ball away. Then Thurmond tipped it before it hit the ground and Wagner grabbed it, running 45 yards with the interception. Arizona never had the ball that far inside Seattle territory again.
Russell Wilson was intercepted in the final 3 minutes of the second quarter, the first time in five games he was picked off. The pass -- which appeared to be tipped at the line of scrimmage -- ended Wilson's string of 126 consecutive passes without an interception.
