Cardinals vs. Seahawks preview:

Arizona started the year as a contender to win a playoff spot and challenge for the NFC title. 14 games later, the Cardinals have more questions than answers, and are going to miss the playoffs entirely. David Johnson has been the lone bright spot on a team that is struggling on both sides of the ball. Larry Fitzgerald continues to defy Father Time, and leads the league in receptions, but injuries have plagued the team as a whole.

Seattle is in prime position to make the playoffs yet again, and the Seahawks are getting hot at the right time to make a push for the NFC title. Russell Wilson is finally back to full strength, which means he can escape the pocket when necessary to keep a play alive. That's dangerous for any defense going up against the Seahawks, but especially the Cardinals, whose secondary is struggling this season through injuries. After struggling to run the ball lately, the Seahawks get a soft run-defense in Arizona that might give Seattle a little life.

Cardinals vs. Seahawks prediction:

Seattle and Arizona were supposed to battle it out for a playoff spot. That didn't happen. Seattle will make the playoffs, while Arizona will not, but this game will be a hard-fought struggle regardless.
