Cardinals-vs-Seahawks-Week-10Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks (SNF)

When: Sunday, November 15th 2015 at 8:30pm ET
Where: CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington
Watch: NBC

THERE are several divisional match-ups in week ten, but none bigger than the Arizona Cardinals (6-2) vs. Seattle Seahawks (4-4). This is a great opportunity for Seattle to gain ground in the NFC West before it’s too late.

Both teams have won two games in a row, but the Cardinals have been more impressive at this point in the season. Arizona have had plenty of trouble against Seattle recently, though, which is why the Seahawks are favored at home.

ARI at SEA week 10 picks

The Seahawks have dominated the head-to-head series – going 4-1 (4-1 ATS) in the last five games.

However, the Cardinals did beat Seattle in 2013 at CenturyLink Field. It’s tough to beat Seattle at home due to the insane crowd noise, but in week six the Panthers were able to win in Seattle (27-23).

Seattle only score 20.9 PPG (24th), so the recipe to beat them is simply score points. The Seahawks have four losses already in 2015 and all of those have come when the Seahawks have allowed 20+ points.

Arizona have one of the best defenses in the NFL – they’re allowing 19.1 PPG (7th), 222.6 PYPG (7th) and 90.1 RYPG (4th) on defense. They shouldn’t have trouble shutting down Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle still have one of the best rushing attacks (139.5 RYPG – 3rd), but Lynch has struggled to get going since coming back from injury and the Cardinals aren’t a team any RB wants to play against.

The Cardinals offense is among the best in the league too. Arizona ranks 2nd in points scored (32.9 PPG), 4th in passing yards (292.6 PYPG) and 9th in rushing yards (124.8 RYPG) thanks to a great cast of veterans.

Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald and Chris Johnson are all having a great season so far.

I don’t expect Arizona to come close to their season average in points scored this week, but if they can score 21+ points, the game will be winnable. It won’t be easy, though, as Seattle still has an elite defense.

Seattle only allow 17.5 PPG (3rd), 186.4 PYPG (2nd) and 98.5 RYPG (9th).

Fitzgerald may struggle in this one, as he’ll be heavily covered, but look for Michael Floyd to have another big game. He’s a deep threat that Palmer has been targeting more often the past three weeks.

Let’s take a look at the over/under betting market in the Cardinals vs. Seahawks.

Well, something is going to have to give in this match-up.

Will the Seahawks defense or Cardinals offense shine? Arizona would love to crack this game open and score 30+ points, but that’s not going to happen. This game will be won in the trenches.

If neither team can get the run game going, points will be at a premium, as the passing game won’t open up downfield. The last three H2H games have all stayed under 41 points as well, so this total is definitely high.

I feel even stronger about the under due to this game being played in Seattle. If the Cardinals were at home, there’d be a much better chance that they break out offensively through the air.

Seattle are coming off a bye week too, so they’ve had time to prepare for Palmer.

Injury report

There aren’t too many new injuries to report about on either team. For the Seahawks, Luke Wilson is still listed as questionable after suffering a week eight injury, while the offensive line has a couple questionable players too.

Jermaine Gresham and Larry Fitzgerald are probable and will play this week for the Cardinals, but John Brown is still questionable and hasn’t been practicing much this week. He should play, but he won’t be 100%.

If Brown misses the game, that would definitely hurt the Cardinals chances of upsetting Seattle.
