The Seattle Seahawks will clash with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon in an NFC West face off. The Seahawks are flying high are are just a few wins out from securing their place in this year's playoffs, where as for the Cardinals it may already be time to start building for next year. The game is scheduled to start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link provided below.
The Seahawks come into this game with a record of 7-5, and sit second in the division behind the 8-3-1 San Francisco 49ers. Meanwhile the Cardinals are the basement team in the division, having had a wretched season, coming into this match up with a poor 4-8 record.
The Cardinals have imploded since their good start to the season. These two sides clashed in Week 1 when the Cardinals were still relevant to the playoffs. However, a few months later and Arizona have become so poor that they are unrecognizable to the team fans watched in those first few weeks.
The Seahawks gained an impressive 23-17 win against the Chicago Bears recently which has greatly increased their playoff hopes. That overtime win led to widespread praise of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, with some of Wilson's teammates even suggesting he was up there with the likes of Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was one person with such high praise of the rookie, saying, "They're going to hype who they're going to hype, and you're in the Seattle market, and it doesn't matter what you do. He's beat the Bears, the Packers, the Patriots. You show me another quarterback with his resume, and I'll show you a great quarterback. But he doesn't get the credit because they don't want to give him the credit. They don't want to make him a big name. They make the guys a big name who they want to make a big name," according to USA Today.
He added, "He's a great quarterback, and he's probably a little better than those guys."
However, it must be said that Wilson's one advantage over the likes of Griffin III and Luck is that he has one of the NFL's best defenses on his side, as well as one of the most powerful rushing attacks.
If the Cardinals are going to shock everyone they are going to have to get on top of Wilson and nullify his threat. Easier said than done.
