Cardinals complicating Seahawks playoff hopes

AP

The Seahawks only chance to make the playoffs is to win.

But the Cardinals aren’t cooperating at the moment.

The Cards are up 17-7 in the second quarter, with Elijhaa Penny‘s touchdown run giving them a 10-point lead. Patrick Peterson, a Nationwide Walter Payton Man of the Year award nominee, is leading the defense.

The Seahawks offense is off to an awful start (no yards in the first quarter), with Tyler Lockett‘s 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown their only life so far.

There could be major changes in the offing in Seattle either way, but this doesn’t look like a team that’s prepared to scare anyone if they do get in the playoffs.
