Why the Cardinals can cover

The Cardinals are known for their high-flying offense, as quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins provide fireworks on a weekly basis. However, Arizona’s defense is also effective, and they will need to be stingy against a top-tier Seahawks offense.

The Cardinals are a top ten team in the NFL in scoring defense, giving up just 23.3 points per game, and Arizona is No. 8 in the league in allowing only 6.9 yards per pass attempt. While Seattle is prolific, the Seahawks have had offensive issues this year with the fifth-most interceptions in the league (10) and bottom-tier marks in protecting the quarterback (30 sacks allowed) and converting third downs (39.0 percent).

Why the Seahawks can cover

Russell Wilson is one of the top players in the NFL and leads a dynamic Seahawks offense. Wilson leads the league with 28 touchdown passes and is second with 2,789 passing yards. Wilson is a top-five player in passer rating and yards per attempt, all while completing nearly 70 percent of his throws.

As such, Wilson leads the No. 3 passing offense in the NFL this season, and Seattle’s passing game is the biggest reason that the team is leading the league in producing 32.2 points per game.
