The Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks meet on Sunday in a pivotal NFC West showdown on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football”.
Seattle (5-0) travels to Glendale after having the previous weekend off and pulling a typical Seahawks nail-biter in Week 5 over the Vikings. Russell Wilson is the early favorite to win MVP, and leads the league in passing touchdowns (19) and yards per attempt (8.9). His arsenal of receivers with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett may be about ready to receive a serious upgrade with the possible addition of free agent Antonio Brown who was suspended for the first half of the NFL season.
Arizona (4-2) is fresh off a drubbing of Dallas on “Monday Night Football” in which the Cardinals put up 38 points despite completing just nine passes. Kyler Murray was effective with his feet, running the ball nine times for 67 yards and a score. DeAndre Hopkins only had two receptions but still leads the NFL with 601 receiving yards.
With the Seahawks coming off a bye and the Cardinals playing on a short week, Seattle is a slight favorite to remain unbeaten and maintain their perch atop the NFC. Arizona and Seattle meet again on “Thursday Night Football” in Week 11.
Below is everything to know about this week’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the Seahawks vs. Cardinals in Week 7.
