The Seattle Seahawks clung to a 10-7 halftime lead over the Arizona Cardinals thanks to a spectacular touchdown by DK Metcalf from Geno Smith early in the second quarter. Smith found Metcalf on third-and-goal from the 4-yard line, rolling to his left and throwing to Metcalf in a tight window in the back of the end zone for the score.

Smith had a productive day, going 15 of 20 for 144 yards and a touchdown (111.2 rating). Kenneth Walker, who had just nine carries for 31 yards, was held in check by the Arizona defense.

The Cardinals scored a touchdown on their opening drive for the first time in 14 games. Kyler Murray hit DeAndre Hopkins for a 22-yard score midway through the first quarter to put Arizona up 7-3. Hopkins, who has had multiple receptions and receiving yards since returning from his suspension in Week 7, has his second straight game with a touchdown catch.

Murray went 14 of 19 for 101 yards with a touchdown (103.2 rating) and had 53 yards in the NFC West rematch against Arizona earlier this year. The Cardinals were driving to Seattle’s 31-yard line in the final minute of the first half when Murray ran for a first down on fourth-and-4. Ryan Nall took at least three points off the board for Arizona, thanks to a steal from the lead.
