Seahawks 22, Cardinals 10

Seahawks unfazed by division lead

SEATTLE — In the NFC West, style points don't count. Good thing, too, with how the Seahawks looked in taking over the top spot.

"I love being in first place, but it doesn't mean anything right now. To me it's like the BCS; it doesn't matter right now, it's how you finish," said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who spent the previous decade as coach at USC.

Olindo Mare hit five field goals and Matt Hasselbeck found revived former Plant star Mike Williams on a 2-yard score for Seattle. Williams, out of the league the past two years, had 11 catches for 87 yards and his first touchdown since 2006.

The Seahawks committed 10 penalties, allowed five sacks and gave up 113 yards rushing, the first time Seattle allowed 100 or more this season.

"We have so much room for improvement," Carroll said.

But the Cardinals had five turnovers and lost rookie quarterback Max Hall, who felt woozy after a legal hit in the third quarter.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
