Seahawks End Desert Drought, Beat Cardinals 34-22

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Russell Wilson tossed three touchdown passes and the Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals 34-22 on Thursday night to improve to 6-1 for the first time in franchise history.  The win is just Seattle's second in its last eight games in Arizona.  

Wilson tossed a 31-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice on Seattle's first offensive possession to give the Seahawks a 7-0 lead.  The Seahawks got the ball back on an Earl Thomas interception, and got a second quarter touchdown pass to Zach Miller to make it 14-0.

The Cardinals closed the gap to four points on a field goal and a Rashard Mendenhall touchdown run before Seattle closed out the first half on a Steven Hauschka field goal to make it 17-10.

Seattle picked up right where it left off in the third quarter, as Wilson fired a third touchdown strike to tight end Kellen Davis to give the Seahawks a 24-13 lead.  They extended the lead to 18 points on a 47-yard interception return by Brandon Browner to the Arizona 1-yard line, setting up a Marshawn Lynch touchdown run.

Wilson finished the night 18-of-29 passing for 235 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions.
