The Seattle Seahawks travel into Arizona to face the Cardinals on the Week 7 edition of Thursday Night Football. The Seahawks rebounded after taking their first loss of the season to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5 to defeat the Tennessee Titans 20-13 in Week 6. Seattle comes into the game at 5-1 and on top of the NFC West. Arizona is fourth in the West, but, at 3-3, has the best record of any last place team in a division. Arizona Cardinals tickets for this game are averaging $131, 19% more the average Cardinals home ticket in 2013. However, this is a 28% less than the average price for Seattle Seahawks tickets on the road. The get-in price is currently $41 and prices for the game are also up 2% in the last week.
The last time the two teams played at University of Phoenix Stadium was last year’s season opener. Ticket prices for that game were just $89, 32% cheaper than this year’s game.
The Seahawks have used their running game to beat down opponents this season. Some of this is in part to Seattle having the lead late in games, so they are running to kill the clock, but the run has been effective either way. The Seahawks have failed to gain 150 yards on the ground in just one game this season. Marshawn Lynch has been the main component of the running game averaging 19.5 rushing attempts per game and 4.2 yards per attempt. Seattle has two other dangerous backs in Robert Turbin and Christine Michael who are both averaging over four yards per carry in limited touches.
In the passing game, Russell Wilson must be aware of Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson. Peterson has become one of the best cornerbacks in the league in his third season and already has three interceptions in 2013. Wilson is averaging just 26 pass attempts and 206 yards per game, and is throwing a touchdown on 5.1% of those pass attempts.
