The second matchup of the season between quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray is going to be a shootout. More so because Murray has emerged in the MVP conversation along with Wilson.
This also wraps up the season series between these two NFC West rivals, if the Cardinals do get this win, it would really shift the way the Seahawks would be approaching the remaining games of the season.
On Sunday, the Cardinals beat the visiting Buffalo Bills 32-30 on a Hail Mary play to DeAndre Hopkins that will go down as one o the craziest endings to a game the NFL has ever seen.
Watch for yourself if you don’t believe me.
From that play alone, the Cardinals are probably coming into Seattle with their confidence through the roof. Murray threw for 245 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also rushed for two scores.
Hopkins had seven catches for 127 yards, and running back Kenyan Drake rushed 100 yards on 16 carries.
If you have been watching the Seahawks defense all season long, all of that looks like bad news for Seattle fans.
What is there to say, honestly? The Seahawks look bad on both sides of the ball and they are 1-3 in their last four games.
Sunday’s 23-16 loss to the Los Angeles Rams severely hurt Wilson’s chances as the MVP front runner this year as he turned the ball over twice and threw no touchdowns in the game.
The Seahawks need this game more than anything, and its time for Seattle's defense and Wilson himself to get back into gear before the bye-week hit.
Kyler Murray is averaging around 263 passing yards per game. PointBet lists Murray getting 300 yards or more passing at +130, not a bad bet against the Seahawks passing defense which has been the main issue… all season long. The Seahawks passing defense allowed 302 passing yards against the Rams.
Russell Wilson on PointsBet is listed at +130 for over 300 yards against the Cardinals. With the loss against the Rams on Sunday, Wilson won’t be satisfied and will come back on Thursday better than ever.
