We get some breakdown from Cian Fahey.

One of the backbreaking plays that happened in the Arizona Cardinals 35-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks was the 79-yard Marshawn Lynch touchdown run. People are calling it BeastQuake 2.0, as it resembles the original BeastQuake run he had in the postseason a few seasons ago.

Cian Fahey, who writes from a number of well-known football sites, broke down the play on Twitter and what happened to the Arizona defense.

The "other linebacker" who missed Lynch at the line of scrimmage and ended up taking Calais Campbell out of the play was rookie Glenn Carson. The DB that was thrown to the sideline must have been Tony Jefferson.

That's what happened. It was ugly and I hope never to see anything like it.
