Happy Thursday one and all.
The Arizona Cardinals are looking to go 4-4 with Kyler Murray under center as they close out the season against the Seattle Seahawks. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Seahawks as 2.5-point favorites over the Cardinals in the final game of 2023.
In their three wins to get them to 3-4 right now, they have beat teams with a combined 27-21 overall record.
That is an impressive feat when you consider they are a combined 2-13 the last two seasons without Murray and this season they looked like they were going to be an epically awful team.
That honor has gone to the Carolina Panthers, who have completely screwed the pooch with their decisions and now you have to wonder who wants that job?
However, this week the Arizona Cardinals host the Seattle Seahawks for their final game of the season, while the Seahawks are looking to make the playoffs.
The Seahawks kind of blew their chance last week, losing at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but since November, they have been a really tough team to follow.
Since November 5th, the Seahawks are 3-6, averaging 19.4 points per game, giving up 27.1 points per game, giving up 392 yards per game, while they are only gaining 313 yards per game.
More than anything, their top ranked run defense has fallen on hard times, as they are 30th in yards allowed and 25th in yards per attempt. When they met earlier this year, those numbers were fifth and first respectively.
So, we know what the Cardinals will want to do.
Can they do it against a team that will be selling out to stop it?
