Sunday Night Football ends in a tie after two missed field goals
Sunday Night Football between the Seahawks and Cardinals ended in a 6–6 tie after two easy missed field goals.
Toward the end of a marathon overtime in which neither team appeared to desire victory, Arizona appeared to have an easy win with the ball inside the Seattle 10-yard line. That’s when kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a chip-shot field goal.
Arizona had driven down to the five after a big 40-yard pass from Carson Palmer to JJ Nelson, and nearly punched it in with a pair of David Johnson runs. After a delay of game penalty backed them up to the six, Catanzaro had the chance to win it. He did not.
Seattle then drove down the field to try for a 28-yard field goal in the closing seconds to win. Stephen Hauschka missed that one.
Arizona head coach Bruce Arians wasn't pleased with anything concerning the game, including Catanzaro missing a chip shot field goal.
"He's a professional," Arians said. "This ain't high school. You get paid to make it."
"It's a team sport," Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu added. "When the defense is playing well, the offense has to complement us, special teams has to complement everybody, (and) vice versa."
