Seahawks throttle Cardinals in NFC West statement

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes in a second-quarter outburst and the Seattle Seahawks emphatically snapped Arizona's nine-game winning streak with a 36-6 rout of the Cardinals on Sunday.

Playing on the same field where they lost a Super Bowl heartbreaker last February, the Seahawks (10-6) dominated from their opening possession and led 30-6 at the half.

It was a sour end to the regular season for the NFC West champion Cardinals (13-3), who already had clinched the NFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye.

Tyler Lockett set up three of Seattle's four first-half touchdowns - with punt returns of 66 and 42 yards and a 36-yard reception.

Seattle will play at Minnesota in the wild card round next weekend.
