When the Arizona Cardinals left the field Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks, they did so with a 6-6 tie at the conclusion of overtime.
After Arizona’s Chandler Catanzaro and Seattle’s Steven Hauschka each went wide left on overtime field goals, the game ended in a 6-6 tie. Although quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Carson Palmer combined for 567 passing yards, neither was able to lead a touchdown drive in 75 minutes of football, proving that the Cardinals and Seahawks have two of the best secondary’s in the NFL.
The Cardinals and Seahawks secondary’s each proved they are among the most elite in the NFL; Arizona ranks third in the NFL in passing defense, while the Seahawks come in at number nine.
Because of the tie, the Cardinals still trail the Seahawks for the NFC West division lead by 1.5 games. With Seattle on a bye next week, the Cardinals have an opportunity to cut the difference by a half-game, but must go on the road against the Carolina Panthers.
