The Seahawks have clinched a playoff berth so the biggest thing at stake in this one is seeding for Arizona…If Carolina loses.
Kick off is set for 4:25 PM ET and you can bet the Cardinals would love to take down the defending NFC champs for a second time this season.
The Seahawks came back to earth last week in a surprising home loss to the Rams. Before that no team in the league was playing better over the previous five weeks.
I know when you think Seattle you think about defense but over that stretch the offense was amazing and Russell Wilson was red hot with sick numbers.
The defense is still top notch. Led by the the Legion of Boom in the secondary they rank either second or third in most defensive categories. Kam Chancellor who sets the tone back there is questionable for this one.
Seattle has had to overcome a lot to get to this point. They will not give the game away but without a ton to play for it would not surprise if they are equally interested in being healthy for next week as they are in winning.
They are banged up so much as it is.
*Note* – Marshawn Lynch WILL NOT play on Sunday (the team has announced)
The Cardinals obliterated the Packers last week. Sure Green Bay had a bad game but it seems like we say that about every Cards opponent this season. These guys are damn good.
You probably didn’t realize it but they are the top scoring team in the NFL right now. They scored 39 point in their win up at Seattle early in the season.
On defense they are fifth in the league in points allowed. They don’t have the starpower of some of the other big time defenses in the league but they are getting the job done, especially on the turnover fronts.
The season is coming to a close and the Cardinals know they will have a week off no matter what happens. Every reason to press to the end.
