To say the Seattle Seahawks dominated Arizona on Sunday could be considered an understatement. Remember the score? 58-0?

The ‘Hawks earned their first shutout victory since 2009, and the fourth-largest shutout in the NFL since 1940.

They won the game by forcing eight turnovers – 6 in the first half.

"The turnovers were the story – you gotta do well when you get eight," said coach Pete Carroll after the game. "We took advantage of the score."

"To be able to win in that fashion, especially in the National Football League, that's hard to do," said rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. "Now we have to move on to the next week…. It's another chapter. We have to move on and play the Buffalo Bills on the road, so that will be a great game."

 

49ers vs. Seahawks Moved to SNF

Because of the Seahawks 'dominating performance – not only last week, but all of this season – the NFL said Monday it would be moving the 49ers vs. Seahawks game on Dec. 23 to Sunday Night Football on NBC. The game had originally been scheduled at 1:25 p.m. The game will now be on KHQ, KNDU and KNDO in Eastern Washington at 5:20 p.m;.
