With the Seahawks coming off an overtime win in Chicago, coach Pete Carroll was well aware of the potential for a letdown against the lowly Cardinals, then losers of eight straight games.
What happened against Arizona was perhaps the polar opposite of a letdown – a 58-0 rout that stands as the biggest blowout in franchise history. Effort wasn't an issue for the Seahawks, safe to say.
In the latest "Chalk Talk" video, Brock Huard breaks down one play that typified how Seattle outworked Arizona. It was Marshawn Lynch's 22-yard touchdown run, the first of his three scores.
You can watch the play on the Seahawks' website.
