Recap



Seahawks 34, Cardinals 22: Russell Wilson threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns to lift visiting Seattle to its first 6-1 start in franchise history.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown and the Seahawks held the Cardinals to 234 total yards to open a 1 1/2-game lead over San Francisco (4-2) atop the NFC West. Sidney Rice, Zach Miller and Kellen Davis all had scoring receptions for Seattle.

Carson Palmer was sacked seven times and finished 30-of-45 for 258 yards and one TD with two interceptions - the fifth consecutive game in which he has been picked off multiple times. Jay Feely kicked three field goals for the Cardinals (3-4), who saw the game get away when the Seahawks scored two touchdowns in a span of under four minutes in the third quarter.

Wilson threw TD passes of 31 yards to Rice and 15 yards to Miller as Seattle opened a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. Arizona clawed back with 10 points in 22 seconds, getting a 49-yard field goal from Feely and a Matt Shaughnessy sack of Wilson inside the 5-yard line to set up Rashard Mendenhall's 3-yard run. Steven Hauschka hit a 51-yard with five seconds left in the half to make it 17-10.

Feely's 52-yarder cut the deficit to four points, but Wilson capped an 80-yard drive with a 1-yard toss to Kellen Davis before Brandon Browner returned an interception to the 1-yard line, setting up Lynch's plunge for a 31-13 lead with 3:52 left in the third. The Cardinals had first-and-goal at the 4 after another Wilson fumble but they were forced to settle for Feely's 22-yard field goal 19 seconds into the fourth.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Wilson registered his fifth career game with three scoring passes but it was the first time he accomplished it on the road. ... Palmer completed 15 straight passes in the fourth quarter but his two interceptions marked the 20th consecutive game in which Arizona committed at least one turnover, the longest active streak in the NFL. ... Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge exited in the third quarter with a back injury and Seahawks LG James Carpenter went to the sideline shortly thereafter with a lower leg injury.
