11/15/09 Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals Preview

By Eric Stevens
November 14, 2009
The line: Cardinals -8.5
The last time these two teams matched up on October 18th, Arizona embarrassed Seattle at home 27-3. This was en route to the Cardinals’ 4-0 first half road record, while being just 1-3 at home. Maybe they should start having the fans dress up as opposing crowds and have them be as loud as possible when the Cardinals are on offense, because apparently this is when they’re the most effective.
Ken Whisenhunt has always been a proponent of the idea that good teams can win at home, but all truly great teams win on the road. It’s time for the Cardinals to prove that they’re… good? If the Cardinals can win this game, the NFC West will be theirs to lose for the rest of the season, and it will put them in a great spot to go after home field advantage for at least the first round of the postseason.
Tomorrow’s game is sure to see two veteran quarterbacks airing it out for all they’re worth (which doesn’t really mean much for Hasselbeck). Neither team has a formidable running game, though Beanie Wells seems destined for a breakout game in the very near future. Seattle CB Ken Lucas is banged up but listed as “probable,” as is QB Matt Hasselbeck with a right shoulder injury. This is very good news for Cardinals fans, as Kurt Warner can make a point of going after Lucas with one of his key receivers, and the defense can look to put pressure on Hasselbeck, hopefully forcing him into bad throws.
The Cardinals are looking to make this a statement game at home, making sure that teams throughout the NFL realize that they own the NFC West. Look for the offense to come out firing, and the defense to play just as it did the last time these two teams met. This one’s going to be over very soon.
Prediction: Arizona 31, Seattle 13
