The Seahawks offense didn’t answer any questions about its firepower Sunday, but the defense answered enough for everybody as they held Arizona scoreless in the second half of a 13-10 victory.

Chris Clemons was all over Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb and Kam Chancellor picked off his first NFL pass late in Sunday’s victory. The Cardinals punted on their first 4 possessions of the second half before the Chancellor interception.

Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson completed 18 of 31 passes for 171 yards. He ran for a touchdown and threw 1 interception. It was Jackson’s 11-yard touchdown scramble in the 3rd quarter that put Seattle up for good.

As a team, the Seahawks rushed for 122 yards, led by 73 from Marshawn Lynch. Sidney Rice led the team with 8 receptions for 109 yards in his Seahawks debut. Rice was sidelined by injury the last two weeks.

With the victory, the Seahawks improved to 1-2, and 1-1 in the NFC West. They also moved into a tie for second in the division with Arizona. San Francisco, the team that beat Seattle in week 1, leads the division at 2-1. The Rams fell to 0-3 Sunday.  

The Seahawks were without guard Robert Gallery, who will miss 4-6 weeks with a groin injury
