Cheap Doug Baldwin Jersey , hit receivers in stride, kept his poise in the pocket and under the pressure of making his first NFL start.Only one thing was missing: a win.Plagued by miscues, dropped passes and a big missed field goal, the Arizona Cardinals spoiled Rosen's debut as a starter with a 20-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 52-yard field goal as time expired after Arizona's Phil Dawson missed a 45-yard attempt, dropping the Cardinals to 0-4 for the first time since 1986."Binarily, I wanted to win the game," Rosen said. "I don't care if I threw 10 picks, I'd take that and a win over what happened today."The Cardinals planned to bring Rosen along slowly after selecting him with the 10th overall pick of the NFL draft, hoping he could learn the NFL ropes playing behind Sam Bradford.But with Bradford struggling through the season's first three games, the Cardinals turned to Rosen in the fourth quarter of last week's game against Chicago. Rosen threw an interception and had a pick-six erased by a penalty, but showed enough that first-year coach Steve Wilks named him the starter against Seattle.Rosen was off target on two throws and was sacked in Arizona's opening drive before finding a rhythm and a bevy of receivers with on-the-mark throws.One problem: Some of his best throws fell to the ground.The Cardinals dropped at least five passes, including a ball to J.J. Nelson that could have gone for a long touchdown late in the second quarter.Rosen finished 15 for 27 for 180 yards and a 22-yard touchdown to Chad Williams, numbers that could have been far higher had his receivers held onto the ball better."He didn't get down even though we had a couple of drops there," Wilks said. "He was encouraging his teammates, stayed the course, continued to try to operate the offense well. The guy is very poised, very confident and I like him back there commanding the huddle and running this offense."Rosen had the preseason and nearly three games of watching to prepare for the playing in the NFL. He was poised during the 11 snaps he played against the Bears and, after some early jitters against the Seahawks (2-2), looked like he had been playing in the NFL all along, not making his first start. He also made good decisions, using his legs to escape pressure and throwing the ball away instead of forcing balls into tight coverage."I was very impressed with what he did," Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries said. "He commanded the huddle. He didn't have any moments where it seemed like it was too big for him out there."For all Rosen did do, he still couldn't lead the Cardinals to their first win in 2018.Rosen was solid, Arizona finally got David Johnson untracked (112 total yards and a TD) and the defense prevented Seattle from converting a third-down attempt.The Cardinals bumbled victory away with the dropped passes, two missed field goals by Dawson Justin Britt Jersey , a series of missed tackles and an inability to stop the Seahawks from setting up the winning field goal. Rosen also missed an open receiver in the end zone in the first half."We've all got things we've got to work on," Rosen said. "Everyone made a couple mistakes and I think if one of those mistakes didn't happen, we'd be sitting here with a W, so we're all accountable."Seahawks-Vikings final score: Seahawks lose to Minnesota 21-20 on last-minute touchdown The Seattle Seahawks’ third game of the 2018 NFL preseason ended in a 21-20 loss vs. the Minnesota Vikings at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Seattle fell to 0-3, while Minnesota improved to 2-1, but it’s not like any of the records matter. It was “dress rehearsal” for both teams, with many first-unit players seeing action into the third quarter. Russell Wilson (11/21 for 118 yards) played roughly 2 1鈦? quarters, but the biggest story of this game was the performance of the first-team offensive line. Wilson was not sacked once, seldom pressured, and running backs Mike Davis and Chris Carson combined for 49 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown in the opening half. Minnesota was able to march the ball down the field on the game’s opening drive, converting three third-down plays, but the fourth attempt was broken up nicely by Shaquill Griffin. Daniel Carlson missed his field goal, and for the most part, Seattle’s defense minimized big plays and pressured Kirk Cousins on multiple occasions. The Seahawks offense failed to capitalize on the miss, but Michael Dickson made the three-and-out suddenly worthwhile, as he managed a 57-yard punt that was downed at Minnesota’s 3. Unfortunately, the Vikings offense had little problem driving about 90 yards into the Seahawks’ 10, with a long throw from Cousins to Stefon Diggs among the standout plays. After a Shaquill Griffin holding penalty negated a Bobby Wagner sack, Latavius Murray was able to score from a yard out. Minnesota went for two and Barkevious Mingo was able to break up the pass.With Minnesota having run 27 of the first 30 offensive plays, the Seahawks needed to at least make some attempt to sustain a drive, and they did that and then some. Keenan Reynolds had a couple of nice catches, while Brandon Marshall made a leaping grab over Xavier Rhodes for a 20-yard gain. Chris Carson finished the drive with a six-yard touchdown run, as Ethan Pocic pulled to the right side and Germain Ifedi helped pave the way for a walk-in, and the Seahawks took a 7-6 lead.Kirk Cousins got the ball back and promptly went three-and-out, as the Seahawks defense looked pretty stout. Wilson engineered a short drive from near midfield Cheap Ethan Pocic Jersey , with both Mike Davis and Chris Carson making positive contributions, and it led to a Sebastian Janikowski field goal.To close out the half, Mike Zimmer’s team again got into field goal range, only for Carlson to miss for the second time. Rough one for the rookie. Wilson played two more series in the 2nd half, and his final drive ended with Janikowski splitting the uprights from 55 yards out. He’s still got the leg!Minnesota put its backups in before the Seahawks, and once we were treated to the scintillating Austin Davis vs. Trevor Siemian showdown, the quality of the game tanked like any other preseason game. Davis was awful, Siemian was much worse, and the Seahawks’ second- and third-string defenders dominated.When Davis got pulled following a 2/3, -1 yard showing, Alex McGough didn’t fare a whole lot better, throwing an interception on his first drive. The Vikings tied it up at 13-13 with Jake Wieneke catching a slant at the goal-line from third-stringer Jake Sloter. Trevon Reed was beaten in coverage.McGough bounced back nicely, scrambling on a few occasions and making defenders miss. He engineered a 10-play, 75-yard drive and capped it off with a terrific strike to David Moore for a 36-yard catch-and run score to put the Seahawks on top 20-13 late in the 4th quarter. Moore almost got a punt return touchdown, but Trevon Reed was penalized for a questionable holding. The offense failed to close the game out, and a big punt return (but a terrific tackle by Michael Dickson!) meant the defense had to stop Minnesota one final time.After Erik Walden sacked Sloter on a critical 3rd down, Sloter answered with a 4th and 15 touchdown to Chad Beebe with 47 seconds left. Minnesota went for two, and Wieneke got across on the second-effort to go up 21-20.McGough tried to rescue the cause, but his Hail Mary was caught by Caleb Scott just three yards short of the end zone. I won’t lie. That was kind of fun.Injury reportFS Tedric Thompson hurt his right arm on the game’s opening possession, but returned to the field.RB Mike Davis injured his leg in the 2nd quarter after an awkward tackle by LB Eric Kendricks. Like Thompson, Davis returned to the game.Next week’s opponentThe Seahawks wrap up preseason at home against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, August 30th at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT.
