‘Sunday Night Football’ live stream: How to watch Seahawks vs. Cardinals 2014 online
The NFC West is up for grabs. Can Ryan Lindley take it from the Legion of Boom?
The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals are battling for the NFC West. Seattle is 10-4 and trailing Arizona by one game in the division, but can takeover first place with a win against the injury-plagued Cardinals on Sunday.
Seattle opened the year at 3-3, but has since won six of seven. During that span, the Seahawks have beaten the San Francisco 49ers twice, the Cardinals and the Eagles. Seattle has gotten back to playing great defense. The unit is top-ranked and has been brutally effective over the last four games, allowing seven points or less in three of the four. Led by corner Richard Sherman, the secondary is once again the toughest to throw against, surrendering 184.3 passing yards per game.
Arizona will start third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley, following knee injuries to Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. The Cardinals have struggled to generate much offense after Palmer tore his ACL in Week 10 and have not scored 20 points in a game since. The team has managed a 3-2 record over that time because of their defense, which has limited opponents to 90 rushing yards per game, the sixth-best mark in football. The Cardinals are a blitz-heavy group and the pressure has resulted in 33 sacks, with Alex Okafor and Calais Campbell leading the charge with seven sacks apiece.
