In week 10, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson seemed affected by the cold in Green Bay. Wilson played his first game in a month in week 10 after having finger surgery. While playing with a recently operated on middle finger is bad enough but playing in the cold is difficult at any point.
The good thing for Wilson and his team in week 11 is that the weather at Lumen Field in Seattle should be almost perfect for a football game. According to Weather.com, the Seahawks and Cardinals will have partly cloudy skies at kickoff with winds at just 2 MPH and a temperature of 45 degrees. But the temps will rise a bit during the game.
This means after playing a horrible game against the Packers, and possibly some of that was due to cold and windy weather, Russell Wilson should be able to be his normal self and that means throwing with accuracy, especially on shorter throws.
NFL weather: Seattle Seahawks and Cardinals should have no issues
Seattle faces a must-win game in week 11. This, of course, is very different than what 12s have gotten accustomed to over the last decade. Must-win games in the final couple of weeks of the year? Yes, but many of those were simply about playoff seeding, not just whether the team would make the postseason or not.
Seahawks kicker Jason Myers has had a not-great year and this game might be a close one where every point counts. Myers was perfect on field goal attempts in 2020 but is only 7 of 11 in 2021. He needs to be perfect on Sunday as well. The good thing is, the wind will not be a factor.
So while Seattle must get a victory in week 11 over the Cardinals, they won’t have any weather-related problems keeping them from this.
