The Seattle Seahawks suffered their first loss of the season, dropping to 5-1 on the year, after being defeated by the Arizona Cardinals, 37-34, this past Sunday night. Seattle looked like they had the victory in hand after taking a 10-point lead with just 6:44 left in regulation, however, Arizona was able to force OT on a 44-yard FG by Zane Gonzalez as time expired and won in OT after a Interception by Isaiah Simmons set up a 48-yard winning FG for the Cardinals. Seattle outgained Arizona by a 572-519 margin, however, did commit three turnovers in the loss. Leading the way for the Seahawks was WR Tyler Lockett had 200 receiving yards & 3 TD’s on 15 receptions.

Carson has mild a foot strain that caused him to leave his last game early and is currently considered questionable for this matchup.
