Seahawks at Cardinals – Third quarter

David Hawthorne

Peephole perspective: One long drive by the Cardinals to open the half. Tie game, 17-17.

Player of the quarter: Kurt Warner. The Cardinals QB was 8 of 10 for 80 yards in getting his team even.

Play of the quarter: Beanie Wells scored on a 10-yard run, on fourth down, to tie the game.

Line of the quarter: 116-55. That was the Cardinals’ yardage advantage in the quarter.

The bigger picture: Wow. The Cardinals took the second-half kickoff and moved 82 yards in 13 plays to a tying TD run by Beanie Wells. Warner passed the Cardinals down the field, hitting Anquan Boldin for 9, Steve Breaston for 18, Boldin for 15 and LaRod Stephens-Howling for 15. Wells went the final 10 yards for the score on fourth down.

The two teams then exchanged three-and-out series, before the Seahawks put together and all-back drive to close the quarter. They moved from their own 7 to the Cardinals’ 24, as Hasselbeck passed to Justin Forsett and Louis Rankin and also handed off to them. Forsett carried twice for 16 yards, Rankin twice for 22. Forsett caught a 2-yard pass, Rankin a 9-yarder.
