Play of the game
Tyler Lockett had a 66-yard punt return in the second quarter to the Cardinals’ 16-yard line. After a facemask penalty put the ball on the 8-yard line, Wilson found Chase Coffman for his second touchdown pass. Not only was it the play on which Wilson passed Krieg’s team record, it put the Seahawks up 24-6 with 3:58 left in the first half.
