SEATTLE -- A look at Seattle Seahawks players who were "up" and those who were "down" in Sunday night's 39-32 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

UP

Doug Baldwin: The Seahawks' wide receiver made big play after big play, finishing with seven catches for 134 yards on 10 targets. There have been several instances this season where Baldwin has been open, but the Seahawks have been unable to get him the ball. Russell Wilson did a better job of capitalizing on Sunday.

Cliff Avril: He had five tackles (two for loss), a sack and three quarterback hits. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Seahawks pressured Carson Palmer on 57 percent of his dropbacks. Not a lot worked for Seattle Sunday night, but Avril and the pass rush did their job.

Marshawn Lynch: He had only eight rushes, but Lynch battled through an abdominal injury and averaged 5.3 YPC. No one seemed happier than Lynch when fullback Will Tukuafu got in the end zone.

"That guy is so unselfish," Tukuafu said. "He loves his teammates. I know sometimes [it isn't] portrayed in the media, but he is one of the most selfless guys I know. I care about him -- it makes me want to play that much harder."

DOWN

Russell Wilson: He completed just 14 of 32 passes for 240 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Wilson also fumbled once. He recovered the ball, but was tackled in the end zone for a safety. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the only quarterback who had a worse completion percentage than Wilson Sunday was Denver's Peyton Manning.

Richard Sherman: He's played really well this season, but Sunday was not Sherman's finest outing. Wide receiver Michael Floyd got behind him for a 27-yard touchdown in the first half, and Sherman was called for a pair of pass interference penalties.

Jimmy Graham: He finished with three catches for 41 yards and missed opportunities for bigger plays. Graham had a pair of drops, according to ESPN Stats & Information, and he had the ball ripped out of his hands by a defender in the end zone. Graham has one red zone touchdown through nine games. He averaged nine per season the previous three years.
