Seahawks vs Cardinals 

8:20 PM EST
Rotation #322
Seahawks -2.5 over Cardinals (win)
The Seahawks hot start is over as this team lost the last 2 games and 3 of their last 4.  This is a divisional game and you know you will get max effort from this team tonight.  The Cardinals won a thriller in the first matchup this year, but it was nothing compared to the thriller they won on a hail mary last week.  They stole that game from the Bills.  Seattle has issues on the offensive line and basically has no running game.  This is a problem when you play the Aaron Donald’s of the world, but tonight the key to this game is the inability of the Cardinals defensive front seven to do anything about it.  This team is missing all of its defensive line tonight and of course are missing Chandler Jones as well.  There is not a lot of talent in this front seven and that advantage goes to any offense at the NFL level.  Seattle’s Defense is nothing to write home about either as it sports the worst pass defense in the league, but they do have a good front seven that can get after the QB.  This a desperate game for Seattle and I believe they still have the coaching edge with no disrespect to Kilff Kingsbury.  I think this will be a great offensive game, but because both offensive lines have a few injuries I won’t play the total.  Holding penalties by backups always slow down drives.  Seattle doesn’t have the 12th man on their side, but keep your eye on the line of scrimmage tonight.  I think the Hawks can hold the ball and eat away at the Cardinals front seven.  Take Seattle.
