After a surprising loss at home in a week 9 matchup against the Washington Redskins the Seattle Seahawks (5-3) go into Arizona and look to bounce back against the Arizona Cardinals (4-4) for a Thursday night week 10 matchup. After a slow start the Cardinals managed to get to .500 and look to come a game closer to the Los Angeles Rams for 1st in the NFC West, While the Seattle Seahawks look to be a half a game behind for the lead in the division. Head coach Bruce Arians is 3-1 against the Seahawks in Seattle but 0-3- 1 against them at home since becoming the head Cardinals coach in 2013. The Cardinals are looking to go on a 2 game winning streak after a 20-10 win on Sunday against San Francisco 49ers. Look for The Cardinals to attack a banged up Seattle secondary with safety Earl Thomas being doubtful, and cornerback Richard Sherman being questionable for tonight’s game.
Seattle would have to look to stop the running game of The Arizona Cardinals, after seeing veteran running back Adrian Peterson rush for 134 and 159 yards in two of his first three games with the team since being traded from New Orleans. Peterson looks to still be in his prime and not a washed up 32-year-old running back. If The Cardinals hope to beat the Seahawks, they would have to limit turnovers with the quarterback, Drew Stanton filling in for starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Cardinals expect to be near full strength for tonight’s game while The Seahawks are dealing with injuries to key players, but I still expect the Seattle Seahawks will be ready for tonight’s game, and expect a bounce back from a tough loss to the Redskins.
Prediction: Seahawks 24, Cardinals 13
