There was a lot of scoring in the second quarter of the Cardinals/Seahawks game on Sunday afternoon. Going into the quarter, Seattle held a 3-0 lead, but the Cardinals bounced back and took a lead going into the half.
Jay Feely nailed a 44-yard field goal to even the score. On the next Arizona drive, Kevin Kolb showed his playmaking ability by escaping pressure and hitting Larry Fitzgerald on the left side of the endzone for a touchdown.
The Seahawks brought the score within four points on a 52-yard Steven Hauschka field goal.
Kolb completed 14 of 18 passes in the half, gaining 139 yards and showing good leadership in the no-huddle offense. He commited a big mistake with just second left on the clock, throwing an interception to Marcus Trufant, who returned the ball 15 yards before being tackled.
Seahawks quarterback Tavaris Jackson was rushed all half, completing only 9 of 16 passes and throwing an interception to end the half.
With Beanie Wells out, Chester Taylor and Alfonso Smith are shouldering the load out of the backfield for Arizona. They have combined for 12 rushes and 39 total yards.
The Cardinals are getting to Jackson, and they have sacked him four times. Calais Campbell is having a great game, recording 2.5 sacks in the first half and being a huge presence on the defensive line for Arizona.
This has been a messy game and the Cardinals need to improve their running attack in order to win this game today.
