The Cardinals had no magic on Thursday night.

The Seahawks improved to 7-3, while the Cardinals fell to 6-4. Ram, 6-3, plays the Buckeyes in Monday Night Football.

The Seahawks led 23–21 when Coward Murray was penalized for grounding, followed by a penalty for JR Swayzey in the end zone, resulting in 9:12 left. Seattle took the free kick and scored from the clock with a 41-yard Jason Myers field goal at 6:53 and a 28-21 lead.

The Cardinals got the ball back with 2:15 remaining, two timeouts and 79 yards. They became as close as the Seattle 27s, but from there, Murray threw three imperfections – none intended for DeAndre Hopkins – and then Carlos Dunlap gave them 34 seconds left on fourth-and-10.
