The Seahawks and Cardinals have produced some of the greatest rivalry games of the past few seasons in Seattle and Glendale. The NFC West powers have each won at least ten games the past three seasons.

But Sunday night's primetime 6-6 tie at University of Phoenix Stadium was an NFL tragedy. The game was an absolute mess. The combined possession line went as follows:

In case you missed the ugliness, here are six of the gut-wrenching moments:

6. Chandler Catanzaro Misses 24-Yard Game-Winning Field Goal Attempt (3:26 left in overtime)


Catanzaro had the game on his foot for a 24-yard field goal attempt (after a delay of game penalty on the Cardinals). The Seahawks put pressure on the 25-year-old, who had a 39-yarder blocked earlier in the game, and he doinked the kick off the post. But Catanzaro would kind of get off the hook…

5. Stephen Hauschka Misses 28-Yard Game-Winning Field Goal Attempt (with 11 seconds left in overtime)


Hauschka, the 31-year-old veteran who had missed only one field goal all season, was supposed to finally end the game with a 28-yarder. Instead, he matched Catanzaro with a major pull to the left. This is a Blair Walsh-level shank, although Walsh missed in the tundra of Minneapolis. Hauschka was in perfect conditions in Glendale.

"That's impossible," Al Michael said on the call. Pete Carroll, your thoughts.

Wow.

3. The NFL Twitter Account Gave Up



Think about how exciting it would be to tell family and friends you run social media for the NFL. You don't imagine miserable moments like this. Kudos to the social media team for telling it how it is.

2. Samuel L. Jackson's Anger


This game was so bad it crushed Jackson. This dude played Jules Winnfield, Mace Windu and Coach Carter. He saved all those people from the snakes on that plane. And yet, he could not enjoy his Sunday night. Thank you for speaking your mind, Samuel.

1. Al Michaels Literally Said, "You Want To Kill Yourself" On Air





Michaels and Cris Collinsworth were pretty real about the horrid entertainment produced by both teams. They didn't sugarcoat anything.


What a night. Michaels and Collinsworth signed off by reminding fans they have a potentially tolerable matchup in Eagles-Cowboys next week. The duo is headed to Dallas with bells on.
