Seahawks Can’t Get Distracted By Scoreboard-Watching

The Seattle Seahawks’ playoff hopes are still alive but they need a couple of things to go their way. First, they need to defeat the Arizona Cardinals but they also need the Atlanta Falcons to lose. With both games set to kick off at the same time, the Seahawks will need to refrain from becoming too invested in the Falcons game lest they get shocked by the Cards.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 5-0-1 SU and ATS in the last 6 games in this matchup.
  • The Seahawks are 19-6 SU and 18-7 ATS in their last 25 games against their division at home.
  • The Cardinals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.

The Seahawks picked up an ugly victory vs the Cardinals earlier this season in a game that saw a combined seven players leave due to injury. Of course, Russell Wilson carried the Seahawks, as he tossed both offensive touchdowns to Jimmy Graham.

Wilson putting the Seahawks on his back has become all too familiar this season, as the signal-caller has accounted for 35 of the team’s 36 offensive touchdowns. The one-dimensional approach has worked for the most part but opponents with strong defensive lines (see the Rams and Jaguars) are able to completely shut down the Seahawks.

The Cardinals – who have been the definition of mediocrity – have struggled offensively. The team is 25th in points and 30th in rushing. Luckily, the defense has been doing everything it can to keep the Cardinals competitive. The Cards D has held opponents to a combined 32 points in the past three games but only one of those resulted in a victory for the Cardinals.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
