It was over when ...
Neil Rackers booted a 43-yard field goal with a second remaining. Cardinals linebacker Gerald Hayes forced a fumble that was recovered by Darnell Dockett at the Seahawks 46 with just under two minutes left to set up the Cardinals winning drive. This was the kind of game that would have haunted the Cardinals in past years, but the team rallied from a 3-point deficit to score twice in the final five minutes and win the game.
The Cardinals' inexperienced offensive line was exceptional, as it kept Matt Leinart's uniform clean and provided some open holes for Edgerrin James. The only sack occurred when Leinart tripped over his center's feet. James rushed for 127 yards and scored a touchdown.
