Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks Fight to the Death... and tie

The Arizona Cardinals tied... Tied?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was the game of the year. The offenses were not great, but you also have to give it up for both teams on defense, as the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks brought the physicality. In the end, the game was completely even:

Cardinals 6
Seahawks 6

Yet, it came down to the wire, because the Arizona Cardinals could not finish anything offensively.

Then the Seahawks found a way to make the most of their one offensive possession in regular time, to make it 3-3.

In overtime, the Arizona Cardinals got the ball first and made the most of their opportunity.

It was a steady diet of David Johnson all game long, but in overtime it was the shots down the field, J.J. Nelson, Michael Floyd and then of course a great effort by Johnson and Carson Palmer making timely throws... Until Floyd dropped a pass on third down that would have put the Arizona Cardinals in a position to get a touchdown, which made the Cardinals have to settle for a field goal.

It wasn’t the worst outcome, but the defense was not up to the task completely, as the Seahawks offense put up their best drive of the night, tying the game.

Defensively, the Arizona Cardinals were out of their minds, even with Chandler Jones registering the only sack tonight, they played great.

Yet, on the second overtime drive, the Cardinals got to the one yard line and came up empty as Chandler Catanzaro missed another field goal in a game winning situation.

Then... well... The Seahawks got into position and... Missed their chip shot field goal.

This team... This season... This is not what we expected. So a tie game shouldn’t have been a shock... right?

It was the first time in 44 years that no touchdowns were score.
