[Watch-Live] Arizona vs Seattle Live Stream Free Football Online Now Seahawks look to maintain hold on NFC’s top seed with a win at home over the Cardinals
After setting a franchise record for road wins during the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks return home for their final two games, starting with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Seattle (11-3) is currently the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoff bracket after last week’s dramatic 29-22 road win by Atlanta over San Francisco. The Seahawks will look to maintain their spot by finishing out the season series with the NFC West rival Cardinals. These two teams meet back in Week 4 in Glendale. Seattle jumped out to a 17-point lead before cruising to a 27-10 victory.
It was a rare fast start for the Seahawks last Sunday on the road against Carolina, as the offense scored three touchdowns on its first three possessions. That 20-7 lead (Jason Myers missed the PAT after the first TD) was vital as Seattle outlasted the Panthers 30-24 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Russell Wilson got back on track as he threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns. Chris Carson had another big game with 133 rushing yards and two scores on 24 carries. What was even more encouraging to see was Tyler Lockett looking like his old self with eight receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown. The defense was picked up by a couple of well-timed interceptions by Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright. Attrition was an issue in this game for the Seattle defense as it got to a point where that side of the ball was down six starters in the second half, which contributed to the Panthers picking up a couple of late touchdowns. The win was the Seahawks’ franchise-record seventh road victory during the regular season
Arizona (4-9-1) also got into the win column last week, soundly beating Cleveland 38-24 in the Cardinals’ final home game. The victory snapped a six-game losing streak during which Kliff Kingsbury’s team was competitive for the most part as four of the six losses were by single digits. Kenyan Drake ran wild on the Browns, finishing with 137 yards and four touchdowns. Kyler Murray was solid (275 total yards, TD, INT, no sacks) and the defense forced a pair of turnovers and limited the damage done by Baker Mayfield and compan
Now the Cardinals will try and build on that 5 keys to victory for Arizona Cardinals against the Seattle Seahawks

The Arizona Cardinals ended their six-game losing streak a week ago against the Cleveland Browns. Despite playing the 11-3 Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 16, they would like to extend their winning streak.
The Cardinals have had their greatest offensive success this season when they have had balance between the run and the pass. Kenyan Drake is coming off his best game this season and the Seahawks are not a great team against the run. They allow 4.6 yards per attempt, 26th in the league. Whether it is Drake, Kyler Murray or David Johnson, they need to run the ball.
The Seahawks are 11-3 and two games away from the playoffs. Who will win when they play the Cardinals in week 16? Here are our best guesses.
The Seahawks are currently the number one seed in the NFC but they still need to win their last two games to have a chance of staying that way. Seattle has a bad habit lately of losing to the Cardinals at CenturyLink, having lost there in three of the last four seasons. Will Seattle beat Arizona this time? Here is what we think will happen.

Could Larry Fitzgerald be retiring? My guess would be no, I think the ageless wonder will come back for another year. However, you can guarantee yourself they will come out strong and play extra hard just in case he decides to hang up his cleats. Seattle will have a tough matchup with Al Wood suspended, Quandre Diggs and Jadeveon Clowney both doubtful to play. Shaquill Griffin, Bobby Wagner and Mychal Kendrick’s are also banged up. This creates a huge opportunity for Poona Ford, Bryan Mone and Cody Barton to get more snaps and show the world who they are. I think Seattle will win in

The Seahawks are more banged up than ever. Half the defense was on the injury report and they’ll be short-handed against a Cardinals team that can move the ball. The offense is in better shape but will be without Josh Gordon and Duane Brown hasn’t practiced this week. The Seahawks will need Russell Wilson and Chris Carson to be great to survive this week and hopefully be a little healthier for their crucial matchup against the 49ers. I think that Wilson will do what he needs to do and the Seahawks walk out with a win, but I’m not all that confident.
Despite their record, this is a very competitive Arizona team. With some major injuries and suspensions to the entire Seattle roster, they’re probably poised for more of a challenge then they would’ve anticipated a couple of weeks ago. The emergence of Kenyan Drake in recent weeks has opened up the offense for the Cardinals and will be a point of concern for the Seahawks with the loss of Al Woods and the potential to be without Clowney at kickoff. This will be a high scoring that will come down to the final minutes. While I believe that Arizona’s special teams led by Zane Gonzalez (kicking 90.3% on FG) can make the difference. I ultimately have to give the edge to Russell Wilson. This is Kyler Murray’s first game in Seattle and while I don’t expect him to struggle, I’ll trust Russ more in the final minutes. Seattle will squeak out a victory and move to 12-3 on the season.
I expect Chandler Jones to be a factor this time around for the Cardinals. He was shut out in the Seahawks first matchup, probably why it seemed everyone else got to Russell Wilson in that game (four sacks). Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray isn’t the wide-eyed rookie we saw in week four, either. The absence of both Jadeveon Clowney and Quandre Diggs won’t bother him one bit.
But the Seahawks still have Chris Carson, Tyler Lockett, Bobby Wagner, and of course, Russell Wilson. Wilson has made a habit of carving up the Cardinals, with 23 touchdowns against just five picks in his career. Arizona has allowed more TD passes than anyone this year and is among the worst at intercept
Kyler Murray has thrown five interceptions in his last three games. He had only five before that. Seattle is third in the league in interceptions. He has to be careful with the ball.
Arizona has not been good on defense but has been better against the run than the pass. Seattle’s offense starts with the running game. Carson has 1,190 yards in 14 games this season and six 100-yard games. He is coming off a season-high 133 yards against the Carolina Panthers.
Pressure Russell Wilson
Wilson has been sacked 42 times this season. Chandler Jones, with 9.5 sacks of Wilson in his career, has gotten to Wilson more than any other quarterback in his career. If they limit the run game and get to Wils
