Play of the game
Arizona had the ball, second-and-three on its 37, trailing 20-17. Warner completed a pass to Anquan Boldin, who gained 37 yards before being tackled out of bounds by safety Jordan Babineaux. Babineaux was penalized 15 yards for a horse-collar tackle, giving the Cardinals the ball on the Seattle 13. Beanie Wells scored the next play on a 13-yard run and Arizona never trailed again.
Julius Jones suffered a broken rib in the first quarter, and spent the night in a Phoenix hospital. According to ESPN, Jones had blood in his lung. Cornerback Josh Wilson suffered a head injury in the first half but came back to play. Defensive tackle Craig Terrill suffered a shoulder injury but also returned.
He said what?
Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt: “I think our defense is upset because they gave up too many plays today and too much yardage and that’s not something they’ve been doing. That quarterback is a very good quarterback.”
D as in Dirty
Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett used Matt Hasselbeck’s throat for an elbow rest after a second-quarter sack. Actually, that’s not right because Dockett didn’t rest his elbow there — TV cameras caught him pushing down on Hasselbeck’s throat after he was sacked. Hasselbeck grabbed his throat afterward, but no penalty was called. Dockett was subsequently penalized 15 yards for a facemask in which it appeared he tried to unscrew Justin Forsett’s noggin.
By the numbers
472 yards of total offense by Seattle, its most in any game this season.
136 yards of penalties called against Arizona.
73 yards receiving by Larry Fitzgerald, who had a triple-digit total each of his past three games against Seattle.
65 yards of penalties drawn by Fitzgerald, who triggered two Seahawks pass-interference penalties in the first half.
1 tackle by defensive end Patrick Kerney, which is the same number as Hasselbeck and tight end John Carlson had.
