69 minutes and 45 seconds of football were played, and the Arizona Cardinals took the lead just once, on the final play. Zane Gonzalez kicked the game-winning field goal in overtime as the Cardinals took down the previously unbeaten Seahawks 37-34. 

When it’s Seattle vs. Arizona, the drama never stops. Over a thousand yards of offense was rolled up between the two teams on Sunday night. Cardinals linebacker Isaiah Simmons, who had done very little since selected in the first-round in April’s draft,  would make the play of the night with an interception of Russell Wilson in the extra overtime period. 

Kyler Murray would account for over 420 yards of offense and three touchdowns.

“I never felt we were going to lose that game,” Murray said in his NBC post game interview with Michele Tafoya. 

Wilson would throw three touchdowns to Tyler Lockett, who finished with over 200 receiving yards in the loss. The game was the  first in the history of the NFL where both quarterbacks would throw for 300 yards and rush for over 50 yards. 

After the win, the Cardinals are now on a bye week.
