Seahawks vs. Cardinals preview:
The Seahawks survived a close one Sunday against a charging Falcons team, giving up 21 points in the third quarter. But a win's a win, and they look like a team that can compete for the Lombardi Trophy once again. As long as Russell Wilson is in the pocket and the defense is healthy, the Seahawks are a force to be reckoned with in the NFC.
The Cardinals have some momentum after dominating the Jets, 28-3, in Carson Palmer's return. David Johnson is playing the best football of his career, and the Cardinals defense is stifling. I like them against any team in the NFL moving forward.
The Seahawks have won three of the last four match-ups between the two teams, the last of which was a 36-6 steamrolling of the Cardinals.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals prediction:
I could really see this one going either way, but I like the Cardinals right now, plus they're at home. The defense looked superb against the Jets and they have momentum on their side. I'm not completely sold on the Seattle defense or their offensive line just yet, and I think Carson Palmer finally has a good game.
