Arizona Cardinals (4-9-1) at Seattle Seahawks (11-3)
- Time: 4:25 p.m. CT, Sunday
- Line: Seahawks by 9.5 points
- Playoff Position: Seattle – 1st, Arizona has been eliminated
It’s almost crazy to believe it, but the road to the Super Bowl in the NFC currently runs through Seattle. Russell Wilson has continued his MVP campaign and with the final two games at CenturyLink Field to close out the regular season, it’s possible that Seattle won’t have to play another road game all the way to Miami.
The first of those two games seems to be a gimme as the Seahawks will host the Cardinals. Although Arizona picked up a win last week against a dysfunctional Browns team, they simply don’t have the firepower on offense to keep up with the Seahawks even with quarterback Kyler Murray.
With the Cardinals also allowing the most total offense in the league (5,784 yards), this should be a smash spot for Wilson, Chris Carson and almost anyone who takes the field. If the Cardinals can pull off the upset, the Minnesota Vikings slim hopes for home-field advantage will be alive, but this should be a stepping stone for Seattle on the way to a Week 17 showdown with the 49ers for the NFC West title and possibly home-field advantage in the playoffs.
