Although the oddsmakers spotted the Cardinals eight points versus the Seahawks tonight, I wasn’t confident that it would be a sure game for Seattle. I thought they would win only by a field goal or two but they ended up stomping the Cardinals 35-6! In fact, Seattle gained 596 yards tonight, a franchise record.

I must admit that I was a little nervous during the first half when the Seahawks had multiple chances to build on their lead but they didn’t hit any of their three field goal attempts. But any hope that the Cardinals would pull out a big comeback quickly evaporated with the Beasts’ magnificent 79-yard touchdown run.

Barring a couple of highly unlikely scenarios next week, the Seahawks would get the #1 seed and have home field advantage throughout the playoffs if they beat the Rams. The last time they did that, they won a pretty big, shiny trophy.

I’m looking forward to taking my son to the Seahawks-Rams game next Sunday. Hopefully, we’ll see the same Seattle team that showed up big time in Arizona this evening. It’s going to be loud to say the least.
