Russell Wilson creates time, finds DK Metcalf to put Seahawks ahead

Seattle Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf entered Thursday night with 29 receiving yards and no touchdowns in three career games against the Arizona Cardinals.

That changed in a hurry.

Metcalf caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from a scrambling Russell Wilson to give the host Seahawks a 7-0 lead after their first possession. Wilson kept his eyes downfield after breaking the pocket and Metcalf showed good awareness to break off his route and get open in the end zone.

It was Metcalf's ninth receiving touchdown of the season, which is tied for the NFL lead.
