The Seattle Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals 58-0 today. That’s the second-largest margin of victory in the Super Bowl era, behind 59-0 wins by the Los Angeles Rams in 1976 and the New England Patriots in 2009. How did this happen? Well, the Cardinals turned the ball over eight times, including four interceptions by quarterback John Skelton, and the Seahawks scored basically at will. For proof, just check out this supercut of every Seahawks touchdown — two off of turnovers, four rushing, and one passing. (I left out the two field goals, because they’re field goals.)
Remember when the Cardinals started the season 4-0? Yeah, neither do they.
