Three takeaways as Seahawks beat Cardinals in NFL Week 6 game

The Seahawks improved to 3-3, but there were many errors from both sides in a low-scoring game.

SEATTLE — The Seahawks staged a divisional match at Lumen Field Sunday afternoon, welcoming Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals.

After consecutive weeks of scoring on the Seattle scoreboard, Week 6 saw very few of the Seahawks or Cardinals match up.

Here are four takeaways as the Seahawks improved to 3-3 and defeated their NFC West opponent

Pass Rush returns

Seattle had one of the lowest sack totals among NFL teams in five weeks (8), but managed to put Murray behind the scrimmage line three times in the first half of Sunday’s game alone.

After the Seahawks conceded no fewer than 27 points in each of the previous four games, the Seahawks held Arizona with just nine points and no offensive touchdowns.

A rejuvenated pass rush could go a long way in improving these Seahawks’ defense, and perhaps Sunday’s performance will serve as a rallying cry going forward.

Coby Bryant continues to enforce fumbling

The Seahawks appear to have found a pair of steals in the 2022 NFL Draft secondary. Coby Bryant (fourth-round pick) and Tariq Woolen (fifth-round pick) combined for another snack for the Seattle defense, Bryant’s fourth forced fumble in just six games.

Woolen has taken something in each of the last five games for the Seahawks now. Woolen even added an interception late in the fourth quarter to end Arizona’s comeback bid.

The future is bright for this group of young Seattle cornerbacks.

Another mistake by the special team

It’s not hard to figure out which of the three stages of play so far this season has been the Seahawks’ weakness. Offense was a pleasant surprise and defense played a lot better than it had in a month on Sunday.

When it came to special teams, and the punt unit in particular, another crucial mistake was made that cost Seattle points.
