A lot Injuries And One Awesome Play By Russell Wilson: Recap Of Thursday Night Football
But there was a moment of pure poetry to be found in this game that was otherwise an abomination. One fourth quarter play of ad-libbed brilliance when Russell Wilson, running for his life as he is forced to do so often on this team, performed two 360-degree spins in succession to evade a pair of Cardinals pass rushers before lobbing a pass to Doug Baldwin, who jumped in front of leaping Cardinals defender and ran down the sideline for a 54-yard gain.
It matched Seattle’s second-longest completion of the season, and it certainly was the most improbable. Tight end Jimmy Graham scored his second touchdown of the game on the very next play, and Seattle had a 22-10 lead and all the points it needed in a game that became a last-man-standing affair.
Arizona didn’t score again until there were 20 seconds remaining when Andre Ellington had a 1-yard touchdown run that was more about the final accounting than anything else. Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane blocked the point-after try for good measure.
Now the question is how costly the victory will be for Seattle.
The Seahawks lost left tackle Duane Brown (ankle), defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hamstring), C.J. Prosise (ankle), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (calf) and Sherman. Defensive lineman Frank Clark went down late with a thigh bruise.
The Cardinals lost their left tackle D.J. Humphries to a first quarter knee injury. Safety Tyvon Branch went out with a knee injury later in the half, and tight end Ifeanyi Momah also was lost for the game for an undisclosed injury. Well, OK, it wasn’t undisclosed. I just failed to write it down and forgot about it amidst the deluge of other injury news.
And amidst that hurt parade, the two teams did play some football. At least they tried to. ESPN Danny Oneil
