With eight takeaways and a final score of 58-0, the Seahawks didn't just beat the Cardinals, they razed them to the ground and salted the earth where they once stood.
Better still, the Hawks did it by dominating in all three phases of the game, which bodes well for their chances of beating the Bills in Toronto next week and the 49ers at home the week thereafter.

How can anyone honestly say Luck is ahead of Wilson as ROTY? The Colts tanked the season to get Luck in the draft and his team has been playing a cupcake schedule. RG-III is the obvious leader for ROTY, but Wilson is coming on strong, the next few games will tell which is most deserving to get post season awards.
@Jim Q From what I've read, the argument in Luck's favor is that he's working with a much weaker supporting cast than Wilson is. You have a good point about strength of schedule, though. Luck still hasn't played a game against the Texans, but he'll be getting a double dose of them over the next three weeks: the Colts play them in Houston next week, fly to Kansas City for one last cupcake game in week 16, then play the Texans again in Indianapolis in week 17.
I think Luck's Rookie of the Year candidacy will be decided in those two games, just like I think Wilson's will be decided in the rematch with San Francisco in week 16.
@Matthew Heuett @Jim Q I don't think the 'zona game is going to strengthen Wilson's argument for ROTY however he has a pretty strong resume right now. Lets see how the season shakes out. There's still some football to be played and if Wilson continues to play like he does then he might have a shot at it... if not though... well, who cares. He's great for the Hawks and has made going to the games so much more fun. Can't tell you how great it's been going 6-0 this season... specially after the last couple of seasons.
@MikeRoddy Perhaps, but the Bills haven't been taking advantage of it over the last several years. The last time they won at least three of their last four games was the '04 season (which, coincidentally, was the last season Drew Bledsoe was their starting quarterback). From '05 to '11, Buffalo won two of its last four games just three times: '06, '09, and '10.
I think they have enough decent players on their roster to get by, but Chan Gailey and his staff still have yet to figure out how to get the most out of them as a team.
