Fourteen numbers that help tell the story of Seattle’s 37-34 overtime loss to the Cardinals.  John Boyle

The Seahawks suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday night, falling 37-34 in overtime after the Cardinals were able to overcome a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit. In addition to that final score, here are 14 numbers that helps tell the story of Sunday's loss in the desert:

1

Games lost by the Seahawks, postseason included, since 2012 when they lead by four or more points at halftime. That one, of course, was Sunday's game, and prior to that the Seahawks were 59-0 when leading by four or more at halftime over the past nine seasons.

200

Receiving yards by Tyler Lockett, the second highest single-game total in franchise history behind Steve Largent (261 vs. Detroit in 1987). Lockett's 15 catches tied a franchise record set by Largent in that same game.

3

Touchdowns for Lockett, who now has 34 receiving touchdowns in his career, tied with Brian Blades for the sixth most in franchise history.

472

Combined passing and rushing yards for Russell Wilson, who threw for 388 yards and rushed for 84, his most rushing yards since Week 10 of the 2018 season. That's the second highest combined-yardage total of Wilson's career, trailing only the 2017 shootout win over Houston in which Wilson threw for a career-high 452 yards while rushing for 30.

3

Interceptions thrown by Wilson, just his fifth game, playoffs included, with three or more interceptions. The Seahawks are now 1-4 when Wilson throws three or more interceptions, with the only win coming in the NFC Championship Game victory over Green Bay.

22

Touchdown passes for Wilson this season, tied with Peyton Manning (2013) for the most through a quarterback's first six games of a season.

9

Consecutive seasons with 20 or more touchdown passes to start his career, making Wilson one of three quarterbacks, along with Dan Marino and Peyton Manning, to accomplish that feat.

2,592

Career completions for Wilson, who with his first pass of the game broke Matt Hasselbeck's franchise record. Wilson already held numerous team records heading into the game, including career touchdown passes, passing yards, passer rating and completion percentage.

-1

The Seahawks' turnover differential on Sunday. It's no coincidence that the first loss of the season coincided with the first game in which Seattle lost the turnover battle.

2

Takeaways by the defense, giving the Seahawks 12 this season, tied for the third most in the NFL. The only teams with more takeaways, Cleveland (14) and Kansas City (13) have not yet had their byes and therefor have an extra game on Seattle.

519

Yards allowed by the Seahawks, marking the third time this season they've given up more than 500 yards.

0

Sacks or quarterback hits recorded by Seattle against the elusive Kyler Murray.

2

Field goals made by Jason Myers in the first half, matching the total attempts and makes he had through five games. Myers has been great this season, making every field goal and extra point attempt, but Seattle's red-zone efficiency, some aggressiveness on fourth down and a few red zone turnovers has added up to equal very few field goal attempts.

114.8

Yards covered by DK Metcalf when he ran down Budda Baker to save a touchdown, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, which also recorded Metcalf's top speed at 22.64 miles per hour.
