Russell Wilson shaky in Seahawks debut


Facing 80 yards and needing a touchdown with less than five minutes to play, Russell Wilson felt right at home.

Wilson's rigorous preparation and attention to detail that helped earn him the starting job for the Seattle Seahawks as a rookie left him completely ready to face the task that lay in front of him.

Wilson led the Seahawks on an 18-play drive that gave Seattle seven plays inside the Arizona 13 in the final minute of the game.

Yet Wilson and the Seahawks came up short as a fourth-down pass sailed through the hands of Braylon Edwards and Seattle dropped its season opener 20-16 to the Cardinals.

Head coach Pete Carroll said it was just a matter of making one more play to win the game.
