Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:
» Kolb was 6-of-8 passing for 66 yards and a touchdown in his only drive. He made quick decisions. After a miserable preseason, this gives the Cardinals a huge boost.
» Braylon Edwards let a potential game-winning touchdown go right through his hands on fourth down with only a few ticks left on the clock.
» Russell Wilson was up and down in his first start, as you'd expect. He converted a number of key third and fourth downs to lead Seattle inside the 5-yard line with time running down. But he only averaged 4.5 yards per attempt and was sacked three times. The Cardinals put a ton of pressure on him.
» It appears the replacement officials gave Seattle an extra timeout at the end of the game. This could have cost Arizona a victory.
