The Seattle Seahawks could be 4-1 had the offense played a bit better in Week 6. Or the team could be 2-3 had the offense not played as well as they did in Week 2. Basically, while Seattle's defense seems to be better, the offense has been very inconsistent.
And while the Arizona Cardinals are just 1-5, they play as if they are 5-1. Arizona won't give up nor will they assume they are going to lose. They might not have the most talent in the league, but their new coaching staff has them believing they can be winners and that makes them dangerous.
I do think Seattle comes away with a win at home, but I don't think it will be pretty. Geno Smith and the passing game will be inconsistent and Kenneth Walker III will pick up some tough yards and score two touchdowns, but Walker will only have 60 yards running the ball. Seattle will win 17-13.
Overall, Seattle leads the all-time head-to-head 25-22-1. Walker needs just three touchdowns to tie his mark of nine from 2022. Seattle's rush defense leads the league in fewest yards-per-carry at just 3,2 and Arizona will be without their best offensive player, running back James Connor, once again this week. Connor is on IR after suffering a knee injury in Week 5.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals Week 7: All you need to know
When and where
Week 7 will take place at the home of the Seattle Seahawks, Lumen Field. Kickoff is slated for 1:05 pm PT (that's 4:05 pm PT for you 12s in the eastern time zone and 5:35 pm for those 12s that live in the weird time zone of Newfoundland, Canada).
Sunday's weather shouldn't be too bad. It will be cloudy with highs in the upper 50s but less than a 20 percent chance of rain. Winds will be between 5-10 MPH. Basically, the weather should not be an issue in Week 7.
Seattle is the relative healthiest it has been all season. No player on the active roster (i.e. not on injured reserve, etc.) is listed as out for Week 7. Five players - offensive linemen Evan Brown, Phil Haynes and Jake Curhan, along with receiver DK Metcalf and running back Zach Charbonnet - are listed as questionable. All five could very well play, though Haynes seems to be the most doubtful to be available on game day.
