Seahawks roll, end Cards' 9-game streak
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes in a second-quarter outburst and the Seattle Seahawks emphatically snapped Arizona’s nine-game winning streak with a 36-6 rout of the Cardinals on Sunday.
Playing on the same field where they lost a Super Bowl heartbreaker last February, the Seahawks (10-6) dominated from their opening possession and led 30-6 at the half.
It was a sour end to the regular season for the NFC West champion Cardinals (13-3), who already had clinched the NFC’s No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye.
Tyler Lockett set up three of Seattle’s four first-half touchdowns – with punt returns of 66 and 42 yards and a 36-yard reception.
Seattle will play at either Washington or Minnesota in the wild card round next weekend, depending on the outcome of Sunday night’s game between the Vikings and Green Bay.
