The Arizona Cardinals had a chance to possibly lock up home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but they needed a little help. Before they got the help, they needed to win their game over the Seattle Seahawks and that certainly did not happen.
The Cardinals got beat up by the Seahawks as they fell to 36-6 and it was a dominant win for the away team. The Seahawks outgained the Cardinals 354-232 and beat them in first downs, 22-16.
During the second half of the game, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who has never been shy about stating his opinion, got flagged for taunting the Cardinals. He did so by pointing at their bench and squatting, signifying that the Cardinals are crap, poo, doo-doo, whatever you want to call it.
The Seahawks are now the sixth seed in the playoffs and will play the winner of tonight’s NFC North championship game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers next week.
We can only hope these two teams meet up on the field in the playoffs again. It would be a rubber match as the Cardinals won the first game in November 39-32.
