Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks Thursday Night Football 2nd Half thread

The Cardinals trail at half, can they come back on Thursday Night Football?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The first half showed how hard it was going to be for the Cardinals offensively, but also why the Seahawks offense has hurt them most of the year as the Seahawks lead 15-7 at half.

It was a sloppy, undisciplined first half, the Seahawks had seven penalties and the Cardinals lost D.J. Humphries and Tyvon Branch to knee injuries, we'll update you when we have more information.

Yet, the offense rallied from their one turnover to score a touchdown and keep the game close.

Defensively, the Cardinals were killed on third down on Seattle's scoring drives.

All in all, it was a first half dominated statistically by the Seahawks:

190 total yards to Arizona's 90.

The Cardinals shot themselves in the foot several times offensively as well, but this just goes to show you, good defense >> average offense.

Stats at the half:

Drew Stanton: 6/13 69 yards 1TD
Adrian Peterson: 11 carries 17 yards
Jermaine Gresham: 2 catches 34 yards 1TD
Larry Fitzgerald: 3 catches 26 yards

Enjoy the second half and go Cardinals.
