Seahawks versus Cardinals week 16: 5 questions
By Lee Vowell
The 11-3 Seahawks play the Cardinals in week 16 at CenturyLink. To find about more about Arizona, I asked Scott Allen of Raising Zona five questions.
The Seahawks are heading to the playoffs and the Cardinals are not. However, that has been the case several times under Pete Carroll and Arizona finds a way to beat Seattle at CenturyLink. Three out of the last four years the Cardinals have beaten the Seahawks in Seattle. That needs to stop on Sunday.
Seattle is in a great position to take the number one seed for the NFC. If Green Bay wins out and Seattle wins out and the Saints also win out, Seattle will play at home for as long as they are in the postseason. It seems odd, but it is true. Odder is the fact that if Green bay loses and the Saints win out and the Seahawks win out, Seattle falls to the number two seed, but I digress.
The Seahawks need to win on Sunday against the Cardinals to start with. To find out more about the second meeting between these two teams of 2019, I asked Scott Allen of FanSided’s Cardinals blog, Raising Zona, five questions.
How quickly can the Cardinals be good?
12th Man Rising: The Cardinals have the current misfortune of playing in the NFC West. Arizona is 0-4 against division foes and 4-5-1 against everyone else. This means Arizona is probably good in the future. How good can they be in 2020?
Scott Allen: As long as they make the right moves on defense and maybe change a couple of pieces on the offensive line, they can contend for a playoff spot in 2020. They are probably still a couple of years away from seriously contending for any titles but you never know in this league? The NFL has truly become a year-to-year proposition.
