It sure didn’t take the Seattle Seahawks long to get rolling against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night. Midway through the first quarter, the Seahawks were able to drive right down the field against Arizona thanks to the arm and legs of Russell Wilson.

To cap off the game opening scoring drive, Wilson was able to hit a wide open Sidney Rice, who split the coverage, for a 31-yard touchdown.

You won’t find a touchdown drive as easy as this one came against the Cardinals, and we are afraid that this is just the beginning.

Arizona has had a decent season so far this year, but they haven’t run int a force like the Seattle Seahawks to date.

Unfortunately for the Cardinals and the Red Sea in attendance for tonight’s prime time game, it is going to be an incredibly long night if the defense doesn’t find a way to step up their play.
