EMMITT RUSHES FOR 106 YARDS AND A TD

CARDINALS 25, SEAHAWKS 17

Published October 25, 2004

TEMPE, Ariz. - Emmitt Smith had a record-breaking day. Jerry Rice was barely a factor. Their fates matched their teams in the Cardinals' victory over the Seahawks.

Smith sealed the win with a 23-yard touchdown run, a play that put him over the 100-yard rushing mark for the 78th time in his career, breaking Walter Payton's record.

Rice, acquired by Seattle from Oakland on Tuesday, had one catch for 10 yards.

The game marked the first time in 20 years the NFL's career yardage leaders in receiving (Rice) and rushing (Smith) opposed each other. When it was over, Rice sought out Smith on the field.

"He's one of the best, and I just wanted to pull him aside and say congratulations," Rice said. "You know, he's still doing it."

Gerald Hayes blocked a punt for a safety to put Arizona in the lead for good after the Seahawks rallied from 13 down to go ahead 17-16.

Matt Hasselbeck completed 14 of 41 passes and was intercepted four times. The Seahawks lost their third in a row after a 3-0 start.

"We were bad. I don't know how else to say it," coach Mike Holmgren said. "I'm embarrassed about how we executed offensive football."
