The 12th man in Seattle is getting used to seeing blowouts.
Coming of its second home shutout of the season, the Seahawks only mustered a field goal against Arizona in a disheartening 27-3 loss to the Cardinals.
Arizona’s previously porous pass defense held Matt Hasselbeck to an awful day; he completed 10-of-29 passes for 112 yards and an interception.
The only bad news for the Cardinals was an ankle injury to Anquan Boldin that knocked him out in the fourth quarter. The game was well in hand, so the team may have just been playing it safe. Boldin was seen sitting on the bench with his foot raised and his ankle wrapped.
Seattle’s loss was sobering for a number of reasons. Seattle is now 2-4 despite playing four games at home and have lost games to division rivals San Francisco and Arizona. The Seahawks trail both teams by two games in the loss column.
Perhaps even worse, Seattle’s terrible injury luck continued Sunday. Lofa Tatupu, Patrick, Kerney, and Kelly Jennings were hurt in the game.
The Seahawks get Week Seven off to recover, but one week probably can’t cure all the problems this team has.
