Murray vs Wilson
If having first place on the line wasn’t enough to make this game an enticing view, how about this: two of the most exciting quarterbacks in football going throw for throw.
Arizona QB Kyler Murray was his usual dangerous double threat self last week in a 32-30 win over Buffalo.

He ran for two touchdowns and connected with DeAndre Hopkins for a Hail Mary game-winning TD pass with two seconds left in the fourth quarter.
If the Seahawks are to return to the win column, QB Russell Wilson must rediscover his game. He was picked off twice and lost a fumble in last Sunday’s 23-16 setback against the Rams. The Cardinals intercepted Wilson three times in their Week 7 victory over Seattle.
The Cardinals lost a third defensive starter for the season when it was revealed that defensive tackle Corey Peters was done for the year with a torn patellar tendon. Linebacker Chandler Jones (bicep) and cornerback Robert Alford (pectoral) are already on IR.
Plenty of Cards on the defensive side of the ball are ailing. Defensive end Jordan Phillips (hamstring), LBs Haason Reddick (neck) and De’Vondre Campbell (calf), safeties Jalen Thompson (shoulder), and Budda Baker (groin), and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) are all listed as questionable.
It is a season-ending torn patellar tendon for Corey Peters, the 32-year old. A long road back. https://t.co/IcW8BaoxUm

Offensively, tight end Maxx Williams (ankle) is questionable. Running back Kenyan Drake (ankle) is probable and will play.
The Seahawks are in deep trouble at center. Both starter Ethan Pocic (concussion) and backup Kyle Fuller (ankle) are questionable. Wide receiver Tyler Lockett (knee), who caught 15 balls in the last game against Arizona, is questionable.
Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett missed a second straight practice with a knee sprain. He had 15 catches for 200 yards and 3 TD in the first matchup.

On defense, Seattle starters who are questionable include DE Benson Mayowa (ankle), LB KJ Wright (ankle), and CB Quinton Dunbar (knee). CB Shaquill Griffin (concussion) is doubtful.
RBs Carlos Hyde (hamstring) and Chris Carson (foot) are probable and will play.

Seahawks Struggling To Deal With Cards
Seattle is 1-3 straight up over the past four games. That stretch began with a 37-34 overtime loss at Arizona for the-then 5-0 Seahawks.
That result gave the Cardinals a two-game win streak over the Seahawks. They were 27-13 winners of a Week 16 meeting last season at Seattle.
BUSINESS TRIP!!! 😤

In fact, the Cardinals have proven to be a thorn in the Seahawks’ side at CenturyLink Field. Arizona has won four of the last five games played between these two teams at Seattle. The Cards are 5-2 there since 2013.
As well, Arizona are also 5-1 against the spread in the last six games against the Seahawks. The Cardinals are 5-0 ATS in their last five road meetings with Seattle.
Picks: Cardinals (+140) – 1 unit, Over 57.5 (-110) – 1 unit
