Kyler Murray throws for 350 yards and runs for 60 more
Let’s put this to rest right here and now: Shaquill Griffin isn’t playing in week 11. Neither is Quinton Dunbar. (Want more proof that Dunbar shouldn’t have played against the Bills and Seattle sacrificed playing a potentially decent player versus one who was at probably 20 percent? Dunbar hasn’t re-injured himself in the last few weeks but didn’t play last week and won’t play this week meaning he shouldn’t have played in week 9 either.)
Seattle does slowly seeming to be coming up with some sort of pass rush but there’s no way defensive coordinator Ken Norton, Jr. – who needs to be let go from his current position – will be able to figure out a way to involve his improving defensive line with his bad secondary. With Norton, Jr., it’s either/or or nothing. You get a good pash rush or get decent coverage or you get none of it.
Jamal Adams is great at run defense and pressuring the quarterback but he isn’t good in coverage. Seattle will once again be without – on paper – its top-two cornerbacks. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray can run and create on the move. Seattle will likely settle back, not pressure the quarterback too much because of the fear of him running down field, and allow Murray time to sit back and pick up yardage underneath.
Murray will be efficient in his throwing but Seattle will try, at times, to pressure him. During these times Murray will scramble out and get yards running and pick up first downs. Seattle’s defense is not good, the defensive coordinator is terrible, and Murray will make all of the above pay for that.
Russell Wilson, in the meantime, will throw 2 more interceptions as he is simply in between right now and try to force things that aren’t there.
