Cardinals-Seahawks second half open thread

The Arizona Cardinals trail at the half, can they finish strong?

A fairly even first half has the Arizona Cardinals trailing the Seattle Seahawks 13-6 at the half.

A sluggish start by both teams led to some pretty good action, but the Arizona Cardinals twice stalled in the redzone, while the Cardinals defensive warts were on display in the Seahawks one touchdown drive.

Nick Rallis had a corner blitzed dialed up and Antonio Hamilton just fell down, then two plays later rookie Owen Pappoe got lost in coverage and Will Dissly had an easy touchdown reception.

Outside of that, it is a fairly even game, something we haven’t seen much of from the Cardinals in the division this year.

They’ll need to take advantage of those redzone opportunities in the second half though, and need to get a stop on defense, something we have wondered aloud if they could do.

As for milestone watch, Trey McBride has reached over 800 yards receiving.

James Conner is halfway home to 1,000 yards, as he had 55 rushing yards in the first half.

Obviously a win would be huge, but let’s see a great second half and James Conner get his 1,000 rushing yards.
