Seahawks' lead does not reflect efforts

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Seahawks outplayed the Cardinals -- and expectations -- during a mostly impressive first half at University of Phoenix Stadium.

They dominated on third down, which was a problem area for Seattle when the teams played earlier in the season.

And yet the Seattle lead at halftime is a tenuous one (17-10). The Cardinals' Kurt Warner started finding a rhythm before halftime. Arizona gets the ball to start the second half.

This one might be only beginning.
