Seattle Seahawks(10-4)

Week 15 Top Performers:

Factors to consider:

  • A win hear would put them in first place in the NFC West
  • Playing in Arizona

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense face a tough Cardinals defense, ranked 29th in pass defense and 6th rush defense
  • Expect them to execute lots of passing plays with their spread offense
  • Despite their rush defense, Marshawn Lynch will get through this cardinals defense

Defensive Expectations:

  • Seahawks have the #1 defense in the league and face a 3rd string quarterback in Thomas Logan or Ryan Lindley
  • Expect them to shut down the Cardinals offense both in the passing and running game, especially with Andre Ellington out of the lineup for Week 16

Arizona Cardinals (11-3)

Week 15 Top Performers:

  • Drew Stanton: 109 yards
  • Kerwynn Williams:75 yards

Factors to consider: 

  • Despite losing Drew Stanton half way throw Thursday Night’s game, the Cardinals were able to leave St-Louis with a victory and improve to 11-3
  • They currently hold that top spot in the NFC West, a loss here would take them out of first place
  • Now that Drew Stanton is said to be out for four weeks, he Cardinals are having quarterback issues going into the post-season.

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Ryan Lingley/Thomas Logan have the toughest defense to deal with on Sunday Night
  • Expect them to struggle in their passing as well as their ground game with Andre Ellington on IR
  • Cardinals offense is suffering from lots injuries

Defensive Expectations:

  • If they want to win this game against the Seahawks, the team has to count on their defense to make an impact. However, chances of this happening are very slim

  • Despite their low pass defense ranking, expect the defense to provide good coverage against this Seattle offense that lacks receivers.
