About four weeks ago, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Seattle Seahawks in one of the most absurd games of the 2020 season so far. Arizona pulled out a 37-34 overtime victory that featured almost 1,100 yards of total offense, five turnovers, a ten-point comeback in the final three minutes of regulation, and four possessions in the ten-minute extra period.
It was truly a bizarre game, one that was highlighted by D.K. Metcalf running down Budda Baker on an interception return that otherwise would have gone for a touchdown. Arizona tied the game with a field goal as time expired before missing a field goal in overtime. Then the Cardinals picked off Russell Wilson with a minute remaining in OT and scrambled to get in position for the winning kick with 20 seconds left in the extra stanza.
Was it a pretty game? Absolutely not. But it was hilarious for fans of other teams, and it has sent the Seahawks sliding. Seattle came into that game at 5-0 and are now 6-3 and in third place in the NFC West behind Arizona and the Los Angeles Rams.
Both of these avian-themed teams will look to take a bit of a hold over the division in the rematch tonight on Thursday Night Football. Tune in this evening for what promises to be a crazy game in Seattle at a stadium that was just officially renamed on Thursday afternoon. CenturyLink Field is no more, replaced by the name “Lumen Field” to acknowledge the corporate sponsor’s new identity.
Here are the details for tonight’s game.
