Jackson's TD run gets Seattle 13-10 win over CardsPosted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) -- Tarvaris Jackson scrambled for an 11-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter, bulling through two Arizona defenders at the goal line, and the Seattle Seahawks picked up their first win by beating the Cardinals 13-10 on Sunday.
Jackson's day had a little bit of everything, from fans booing, to later chants for his backup Charlie Whitehurst. But they were all cheering after Jackson ran through Adrian Wilson and Kerry Rhodes to give the Seahawks the lead.
Then it was up to Seattle's defense, which allowed Larry Fitzgerald to make another highlight reel touchdown catch in the first half, but managed to otherwise stymie Kevin Kolb.
Safety Kam Chancellor sealed the victory by intercepting Kolb at the Seattle 25 with 1:04 remaining.
The Arizona Cardinals were without their top two running backs as both Beanie Wells and LaRod Stephens-Howling were inactive against the Seattle Seahawks.
Wells had a hamstring injury that popped up during last week. Stephens-Howling had a hand injury and was limited in practice all week. Both were listed as questionable on the final injury report.
With the duo out, Chester Taylor was to start at running back for the Cardinals. Wide receiver Chansi Stuckey was also inactive with a hamstring injury, but starting linebacker Daryl Washington was able to go after being listed as questionable.
Seattle's only healthy scratches were reserve wide receiver Kris Durham and third-string QB Josh Portis.
