Cardinals block FG, get on the board before halftime

The Seahawks appeared primed to take control of the game in the second quarter as they took possession at the Arizona 48. But a long run by quarterback Russell Wilson that ended inside the Arizona 5 was tempered by a holding call on receiver Jermaine Kearse that put the ball at the Arizona 19. Then, consecutive sacks of Wilson forced the Seahawks to line up for a 49-yard field goal that would add to their 9-0 lead. But the Cardinals were able to burst through and block Steven Hauschka’s attempt with 5:28 left in the first half. (watch video here)

The Cardinals were able to take up just about the entire clock, driving 74 yards in 15 plays and converting a 23-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro with 14 seconds left in the second quarter. Arizona could have gotten more, but a dropped pass in the end zone by wide receiver Jaron Brown on third-and-goal precluded that.
