GLENDALE, Ariz. — Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Jimmy Graham and the Seattle Seahawks added to their history of success in Arizona with a 22-16 victory over the Cardinals on Thursday night.

The Seahawks (6-3) limited Adrian Peterson to 29 yards in 21 carries in a game marred by a host of injuries and penalties, most of them against Seattle, to improve to 4-0-1 in Arizona in Bruce Arians’ five seasons as coach of the Cardinals (4-5).

Seattle’s Kam Chancellor forced a fumble by Peterson on Arizona’s first offensive play and later tackled him in the end zone for a safety.

At least seven players left the game with injuries, including Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman.


GIANTS: Coach Ben McAdoo and his players were in a defensive mode Thursday after published comments by two anonymous New York Giants players said McAdoo has lost the team and players are giving up in the wake of a 1-7 start.

The ESPN report also quoted a player as saying the team is giving up on the season, the coach is not a leader, that he’s handing out more fines this season and they didn’t like his policy of having players work out at 80 percent the day before a game.

McAdoo, who usually doesn’t talk to the media on Thursdays, changed his routine. He said he has an open-door policy for anyone who wants to vent.

“It’s hard to help a player when they don’t put their name on a quote,” McAdoo said. “So if they need some help, come see me. I’m the guy that can help them.”

McAdoo said he didn’t address the report with the team because it was anonymous.

“I’m not doubting it, I’m just saying I don’t know who it’s coming from,” said McAdoo, a 40-year-old coach who led the Giants to an 11-5 regular-season record and their first playoff berth since 2011 last season. “If I know who it’s coming from, I can address it.”

Regarding the fines, McAdoo said the players incur those for breaking rules.

“I don’t fine players, they fine themselves,” he said.

Several players were upset because the quotes were anonymous.

“Whoever was anonymous, whoever said it is a coward,” defensive tackle Damon Harrison said. “Flat out. I mean, if you’re not man enough to put your name behind something … we could have talked it out if you feel that way. It could have (gone) differently, but point-blank, whoever said that is a coward.”

Offensive lineman Justin Pugh also was annoyed.

“All I’m going to say about the whole situation is put your name on your work,” Pugh said. “If you say something, be a man and put your name on it.”

Safety Landon Collins said he believes one of the anonymous players is on the defense. He didn’t know who it was, but it seemed obvious because one player was quoted as saying defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo was panicking in games.

“I’m curious to who it is, as a team, we know we are behind Coach McAdoo,” Collins said. “For a guy to say that, we just want him to come forward and be a man.”

COLTS: Indianapolis released two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis, less than 24 hours after Davis took his complaints about the organization public.

Davis said Wednesday he felt disrespected by the way the Colts handled his demotion and he wasn’t playing at his typically high level because of a groin injury.

BENGALS: Receiver A.J. Green didn’t get suspended for putting Jalen Ramsey in a chokehold Sunday but was fined.

Green said he was fined $42,000 for attacking Ramsey during the first half of the Bengals’ 23-7 loss to the Jaguars. The fight started when Ramsey shoved Green following a play. Green then retaliated by putting Ramsey in a chokehold and punching him several times.

DOLPHINS: Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh missed practice because of a knee injury that briefly sidelined him during last week’s game.

JETS: Running back Matt Forte sat out practice for the second straight day with swelling in his surgically repaired right knee.
