in the game on Sunday.But when it mattered most Authentic Justin Pugh Jersey , the kick went through.Janikowski kicked a 52-yard field goal as time expired to give Seattle a 20-17 victory over Arizona on Sunday and spoil the strong debut of Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen as the starting quarterback.Jankowski had missed field goals of 38 and 52 yards."There is always a next kick," Janikowski said. "You turn the next page and you try to forget the first one, but it was rough today. My confidence is always there. I prepare myself in practice. I know what I can do but it is all mental."The Seahawks (2-2) mounted their winning drive after Arizona's 43-year-old kicker, Phil Dawson, missed a 45-yard field goal that would have given the lead to Arizona (0-4) with 1:50 to play."It was a terrible kick, no excuses," Dawson said. "I didn't do my job, just a good, old-fashioned miss."The Cardinals are 0-4 for the first time since 1986, two years before they moved from St. Louis, but at least they could point to the poised play of their young QB in his starting debut."Hopefully, I can play in the NFL for a while," he said afterward.Rosen completed 15 of 27 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. He had several passes dropped."I can't keep saying it enough http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/antoine-bethea-jersey ," Arizona first-year coach Steve Wilks said. "The guy's very poised, very confident and I like him back there commanding the huddle and running this offense. You can see the difference."He threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Chad Williams to tie it at 17-17 with 8:59 to play, then directed the drive to set up Dawson's errant field goal try. Dawson also missed from 50 in the game.THOMAS HURTSeattle's Earl Thomas was hurt on the Arizona TD pass and carted to the locker room with a left leg injury. After the game, coach Pete Carroll said Thomas had a lower leg fracture. The Seattle player, embroiled in a contract dispute with the team, made an obscene gesture toward the Seattle side of the field as he was being carted off."Earl wanted an extension and at the end of the day he didn't get that," Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark said. "It sucks to see a guy who puts his heart into something, put his all into his team and he doesn't get what he deserves."DAVIS' BIG DAYIt was by far the biggest day of Mike Davis' career."I just feel like I have been slept on ever since I came into the NFL," he said, explaining his touchdown celebration routine, when he lies as if asleep and then bursts awake. "It's just a reminder that I will wake them up one day."Davis rushed for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 21 carries after being pushed into extra duty by the absence of starter Chris Carson, out with a hip injury.Davis scored on a 20-yard sweep early and bulled in from a yard out for the go-ahead touchdown with a minute left in the third quarter.Seattle improved to 5-0-1 in its past six trips to the desert.David Johnson had his best game of the season for Arizona, rushing for 71 yards and catching three for 41 yards.With the score tied at 10 Authentic Authentic Ricky Seals-Jones Jersey , the Seahawks' Russell Wilson threw to David Moore on a 30-yard play to the Arizona 23. After a pair of penalties against the Cardinals, Davis scored on a 1-yard run to put Seattle back in the lead at 17-10.But Rosen had completions of 31 yards to Ricky Seals-Jones and 30 yards on a screen to Johnson before throwing 22 yards to Chad Williams for his first NFL TD to tie it at 17-17 with 8:59 remaining.Arizona led 10-7 at the half on Johnson's 1-yard TD run and Dawson's 23-yard field goal.Seattle used up 7:46 of the third quarter with a 14-play drive that ended with Janikowski's 40-yard field goal that tied it at 10-10 with 4:59 left in the quarter.INJURIES & INACTIVESIn the first quarter, rookie Will Dissly, the Seahawks' starting tight end, was carted into the locker room with a knee injury. Thomas was hurt defending Williams on the TD catch.After losing his starting job to Rosen, Sam Bradford was inactive. Mike Glennon was the backup quarterback, active for the first time this season.UP NEXTSeahawks: host the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.Cardinals: play the 49ers in San Francisco next Sunday. When Jon Halapio joined the New York Giants' practice squad in 2016, Brett Jones was one of the first guys to welcome him.Jones had joined the Giants the previous year as a center in trying to make the jump from the CFL to the NFL, and he appreciated when some new teammates made him feel welcome.Why not do the same for Halapio? The two 27-year-old offensive linemen became real good friends and helped each other become better players.Halapio, a guard at Florida, taught Jones some trade secrets at the spot and Jones taught his buddy how to snap and play center.A little less than two years later, Jones is fighting to keep the starting center job he manned the final 12 games of last season. And it's Halapio, who is the main competition.Not only is he the competition http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/jamar-taylor-jersey , Halapio has been getting most of the first-team snaps in the lineup being put on the field by new coach Pat Shurmur.Jones isn't worried. It's early in training camp and nothing is set. He also has no regrets about teaching the guy who might take his job."It's always been like that in my life," Jones said Monday. "If anybody ever gave me an opportunity I wanted to repay it to them. So that was my thing. Jon was on the practice squad and I was the backup center and if Jon was going to play I wanted to help him out and do what I could. That's what a good teammate does."Learning to snap was part of the mentoring."He had asked me and I sort of gave him the basic training for it," said Jones, who was the CFL's most outstanding lineman in 2014 and missed his first season in the NFL the following year because of a training camp injury. "After practice we would stay and practice snapping. It sort of went from there."Halapio took the long road to the NFL. He was drafted in the sixth round by New England in 2014. He was on the Broncos' practice squad that season and went to the Cardinals and Patriots training camps in 2015 and '16, respectively, getting cut each time.The Giants signed him to the practice squad for most of 2016. He was cut in training camp the following season and re-signed to the practice squad. Injuries got him on the active roster in October and he played in 10 games with six starts at guard.The move to center came this year."Everything was new so I had to learn a lot, not only the schemes, but the different techniques and calls," Halapio said. "I had to learn a lot."The biggest differences are blocking from a balanced stance, having to make line calls and read coverages and sometimes making the shotgun snaps."The more you do it, the better you get," Halapio said. "In the offseason I snapped a bunch, and even now I keep snapping after practice so it's second nature."Halapio admits fighting Jones for a job felt odd at first."It's just pure competition now Authentic Robert Nkemdiche Jersey ," Halapio said. "Like coach says all the time, don't read into who's taking the first-team reps. Everyone is being evaluated. As far as me and Brett goes, we're friends. We help each other out in the film room, on the field, outside of football. Nothing is awkward between us. Yeah, it's just pure competition between us and everybody in the room."The Giants have revamped their offensive line after last year's disastrous 3-13 season. Guard Justin Pugh and center Weston Richburg signed elsewhere as free agents. Guard John Jerry is now a backup fighting for a roster spot.Patriots free agent Nate Solder was signed to take over at left tackle and 2015 first-rounder Ereck Flowers was moved to right tackle. Second-round draft pick Will Hernandez is the left guard and free agent Patrick Omameh is the right guard.The center spot is uncertain.A former center, Shurmur says he is watching the position closely. He wants his centers to be good communicators.Halapio might be a little stronger than Jones, who probably understands the job better and had 30 NFL games under his belt at guard and center.It should be an interesting decision for Shurmur.
