We have reached the end of the regular season, 12s. In Week 18, the Seattle Seahawks will take on the Arizona Cardinals. 8-8 Seattle needs a win to try to make the postseason while the 4-12 Cardinals are just trying to make Seattle's season end sadly.
For Seattle to have any hope of being victorious on Sunday, they must stop the run. The Seahawks failed at that task in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona is capable of running the ball as well as Pittsburgh. In three of the last four games, the Cardinals have run for at least 150 yards. In two of the last three, the Cardinals have run for 221 yards or more.
But Week 17 aside (when Arizona allowed only 91 rushing yards), the Cardinals have allowed at least 117 yards rushing in every game in their last 11 contests. In Week 17, Arizona gave up 250 rushing yards to the Chicago Bears. Pete Carroll and the Seahawks should go ahead and plan on giving running backs Kenneth Walker III and Zach Charbonnet heavy workloads on Sunday.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals game time and location, Week 18
Seattle will have to travel to Glendale, Arizona on Sunday to play the Cardinals. Arizona plays at State Farm Stadium. Glendale is just to the northwest of Phoenix. Kickoff is set for 1:25 pm PT on January 7. That would be 4:25 pm ET, of course.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals TV channel and radio
Week 18 will be broadcast by FOX (channel 13 in the Seattle area). The broadcast team will consist of Kevin Kugler on play-by-play, and Mark Sanchez doing color commentary. Laura Okmin will report from the sidelines.
If you would rather watch the game with the sound turned down and listen to the Seahawks radio team, I do not blame you. Just hope that the radio syncs with the TV broadcast. I am sure you know this, but the Seattle radio team is Steve Raible on play-by-play, Dave Wyman providing analysis, and Jen Mueller reporting from the sidelines. The game will be carried on the radio at Seattle Sports 710 AM and KIRO Newsradio 97.3. You can also listen on the NFL+ app with a subscription.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals live stream
You can also stream the game if you really want to. The FOX Sports app is one place you can watch as long as you have a cable provider login. In the Seattle area, you can stream the matchup on Seahawks.com and the Seahawks Mobile App. If you live in another country, you can watch on NFL Game Pass International.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals: Week 18 betting odds, spread and over/under
According to FanDuel, Seattle opened as a 2.5-point favorite in Week 18. The Cardinals are nowhere near making the playoffs, but you know they would love to make sure Seattle doesn't make the postseason either.
The moneyline has Seattle at -132 and the Cardinals at +112. The over/under is 47.5. Clearly, oddsmakers think that there will be quite a few points scored in Week 18 by both teams.
