Idle Seahawks miss chance to take division lead

Published on October 10, 2010 by     T.C.

The Seahawks did their part Sunday, sitting home and refusing to lose on their bye week while the rest of the NFC West played on.

But while there was some hope that by doing nothing Seattle could move into the division lead, the Arizona Cardinals spoiled that plan by upsetting the New Orleans Saints 30-20 to improve to 3-2 on the season.

The Seahawks now sit second at 2-2, while the St. Louis Rams returned to reality — and a 2-3 record — with a 44-6 loss at previously winless Detroit. The Rams also lost leading receiver Mark Clayton to a season-ending knee injury.

The 0-4 San Francisco 49ers are attempting to get their first win of the season in the Sunday night game at home against Philadelphia.

Despite starting undrafted rookie Max Hall at quarterback, Arizona managed to beat the defending Super Bowl champs and move into first place heading into their own bye week.

The Seahawks travel to Chicago next Sunday before hosting the Cardinals the following week.

But before anyone anoints Arizona as the obvious front runner, it’s worth noting the Cardinals have been outscored by 50 points this season despite their 3-2 record, thanks to road routes of 41-7 at Atlanta and 41-10 at San Diego.

The only teams with worse point differentials are Carolina (-74), Buffalo (-58) and San Francisco (-51) going into Sunday night’s game). And those three teams are a combined 0-14.

So obviously a lot of things still need to shake out this season in a division where .500 figures to look pretty good by season’s end.
