GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Seattle Seahawks fumbled one away in Arizona.
Edgerrin James topped 100 yards rushing for the second game in a row and Matt Leinart threw touchdown passes of 56 and 5 yards to lead the Cardinals to their third victory in four games, 27-21, over the Seahawks on Sunday.
Seattle lost 3 fumbles resulting in 14 Arizona points, including Leinart's 5-yard scoring pass to Larry Fitzgerald for the go-ahead score on the first play of the 4th quarter.
After Neil Rackers kicked a 40-yard field goal with 3 1/2 minutes to go to put Arizona (4-9) up by 6 points, Seattle drove from its 17 to the Cardinals' 15.
But on 3rd & 12 from the 17, ex-Seahawk Chike Okeafor sacked Matt Hasselbeck for an 8-yard loss. On 4th & 20, Hasselbeck threw to Deion Branch, but he was tackled by Adrian Wilson at the Arizona 6, a yard shy of the 1st down, and the Seahawks (8-5) blew a chance to clinch their third consecutive NFC West title.
