Cardinals… 23 Seahawks… 20

September 17, 2007|From the Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Maybe that Cardinals curse is history.

After blowing a 17-0 lead in what looked like another classic Arizona collapse, Darnell Dockett recovered a fumble by Seattle's Matt Hasselbeck. Then Neil Rackers kicked a 41-yard field goal with one second to go Sunday, giving the Cardinals a 23-20 victory over the Seahawks.

Rackers' 52-yarder tied it at 20-20 with 4:44 to play.

The Seahawks (1-1) took the subsequent kickoff and drove toward what could have been the winning score. But on first and five from the Arizona 36, linebacker Gerald Hayes disrupted an already botched handoff from Hasselbeck to Shaun Alexander.

The ball popped free, and Dockett recovered at the Seattle 45 with 1:48 to go. Edgerrin James, who rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown in 23 carries, carried four times before Arizona (1-1) called timeout to take the winning kick.

Quoteworthy: "This off-season, I probably hit that ball 500 times, so I felt pretty confident going out there." -- Neil Rackers, Cardinals kicker
