In a game that harkened back to the 60’s, it’s tough to pick one athlete who truly distinguished themselves. There was a lot of ugly football played by both offenses, while the defenses of both teams really shined.
It’s always hard to pick a defensive player because truly it is a unit that thrives together. Should Peterson be in the rankings? He wasn’t heard from much and for him that’s a good thing as he basically shut down Doug Baldwin.
David Johnson - The Workhorse. The Truth. Again he amassed over 150 total yards from scrimmage, including 100 on the ground, and fought HARD for each of those yards against a top tier defense.
JJ Nelson - John Brown and Jaron Brown are out, someone HAS to step up, Nelson answered the call with a HUGE catch in OT that setup the Cardinals for the win. Too bad the Cat missed it. Too bad JJ is easily tackled.
Calais Campbell - Calais is playing like the best 3-4 DE in the NFL right now and wrecked shop against the Seattle’s offensive line.
Markus Golden - "Markus Golden has been a problem tonight." - Cris Collinsworth. That about sums up how effective Golden was tonight getting to Wilson.
Cardinal’s Defense - Why not?
Ok, I didn’t actually put the Cardinal’s defense as an option because that’s cheating. I will say this, I dare you to pick someone not named David Johnson. While he was the ENTIRE offense, it was truly the defense that made this a game.
Man, that sucked losing like that. Season is lost mate, going to be too hard to come back this far down in the division.
