GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Seattle Seahawks (3-1) took care of business on Sunday, beating the Arizona Cardinals comfortably, 27-10. Highlight-reel plays were sparse as Seattle established an early lead, and then played the field position game in the second half. The Seahawks put the game on ice in the fourth quarter with a 15-play, 81-yard drive that lasted 8:08. C.J. Prosise capped it with a 9-yard touchdown run. It was Prosise’s second-career rushing score.
Here’s what you need to take away from Seattle’s win in Week 4.
1. Dissly dazzles again
Will Dissly posted seven receptions on eight targets for 57 yards and a touchdown, a 9-yard score in the second quarter. The second-year tight end now has four touchdowns on the season and six total in eight career games. He was all over the place against the Cardinals, making sideline catches and contested grabs over the middle. Dissly has established himself as the clear-cut No. 2 option in the passing game to Tyler Lockett, and is showing to be on par from a reliability standpoint.
2. Carson cures fumble issues, dominates Cardinals
The Seahawks saw the Chris Carson they’ve expected to see all season. Carson was elusive, showed patience, broke tackles, got more than what was blocked and was a factor in the passing game. He finished the game with 22 carries for 104 yards and caught four passes for 41 yards. It was his first 100-yard day of the season and the seventh of his career.
Most importantly, Carson didn’t fumble for the first time all season. Rashaad Penny is still on the shelf with a hamstring injury which also helped Carson assume a full workload and find his groove.
3. A standout front seven
Jadeveon Clowney set the tone early with a stellar, one-handed 27-yard pick-six. It was Clowney’s first-career interception and third-career touchdown. Seattle had four sacks on the day – two by Mychal Kendricks, one by Rasheem Green and one by Ziggy Ansah (came on the last play of the game). The Seahawks continued to be stout against the run, holding David Johnson to just 41 yards on 11 carries (14 came on his final carry with under a minute left in the game).
Throwing to Johnson was Arizona’s only real answer on offense. He had eight receptions for 99 yards. Other than that, the Seahawks were able to keep Kyler Murray & Co. at bay. Murray threw for just 241 yards and no touchdowns.
Odds and ends:
- Wilson was fantastic, per usual, completing 22-of-28 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown. He's still yet to throw an interception in 2019.
- Thompson started at free safety after missing two games with a hamstring injury.
- Shaquill Griffin came up gimpy after falling hard breaking up a pass. There was no injury announced, and he never missed a play.
- L.J. Collier posted his first career tackle, a stop of Johnson for a 2-yard gain on 2nd-and-19.
