Russell Wilson was 18-for-29 passing for 235 yards and three touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cardinals 34-22 on Thursday night in Glendale, Ariz.
The Seahawks (6-1) intercepted two of Carson Palmer’s passes, converting both into touchdowns, and sacked him seven times. Two of those were by Chris Clemons, who had been questionable for the game with a hyperextended elbow.
The Cardinals (3-4) got a touchdown and one of their three field goals after Wilson twice fumbled while being sacked deep in Seahawks territory.
Palmer has thrown 11 interceptions in the last five games and 13 this season, second only to Eli Manning’s 15.
Noisy debut awaits Keenum
Case Keenum will start in place of injured Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, where the fans just set a Guinness record as the world’s noisiest outdoor stadium.
Keenum, a record-setter at the University of Houston, spent last year on the Texans’ practice squad.
† Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, still recovering from a hamstring injury, does not expect to play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Vick has practiced on a limited basis all week, while second-year QB Nick Foles has worked with the first team.
Ryan: Jets can still have sex
In an attempt to clarify what he told his players at a team meeting earlier this week, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he ‘‘did not tell our players that they couldn’t have sex.”
Players had been told to put off doing chores around the house until next week, after they play the New England Patriots. Some players mistakenly thought Ryan implied that sex was also banned.
