Release the Kraken!
While the run defense for the Cardinals is a huge strength, the passing defense has been exploited this season and currently ranks 29th with 259.6 yard allowed per game.
Russell Wilson and Jermaine Kearse have found their chemistry over the past two games and today’s matchup would be a good candidate to see Wilson exceed 300 yards passing for just the second time all season.
Max Unger and Russell Okung will both be sidelined by injuries today. Alvin Bailey starts for Okung at left tackle and Lemuel Jeanpierre or Patrick Lewis will start at center. Both will be counted on to protect Wilson so that he doesn’t find himself under pressure as consistently as he was in Seattle’s 19-3 win over the Cardinals at CenturyLink Field.
Although Arizona blitzes more than any other team that Seattle has faced, Wilson was able to escape pressure and rushed for 73-yards in Week 12.
