Week 10 starts off Thursday Night with the 5-3 Seattle Seahawks and the 4-4 Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. The Seahawks are coming off a loss in which they couldn’t stop Kirk Cousins and the offense from driving down the field in the final minutes of the game. The Cardinals meanwhile, are coming off a win against the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams despise each other and could prove to be a blood bath and a fight until the end. The fight for 2nd place is on!
1. Russell Wilson Vs Cardinals Defense
Russell Wilson will be looking to have a bounce back performance as he threw 2 interceptions ans 2 TDs. He’ll need to have a turnover-free game if he wants to win against this Arizona defense. Considering the Cardinals rank 24th in average pass yards per game allowed (249.3), he can could have another stellar performance. The Cardinals defense I’ll also need to collapse the pocket on Wilson so that he can’t escape. If the defense can keep him in check, they could make it a long night for Russ.
2. Drew Stanton Vs Legion of Boom
The Legion of Boom has been rather disappointing the last two week allowing 38 points to Deshaun Watson and the Texans and allowing Cousins and the Redskins to walk out of Seattle the victors. This unit ranks 13th in total yards per game allowed (322.5) so they are still very much a solid unit. Drew Stanton will look to try and limit his turnovers as he threw an interception last week against the 49ers but did throw for 2 TDs as well.
3. Adrian Peterson Vs Seahawks Run Defense.
AP will look to have a repeat performance against the Seahawks as he ran for 159 yards against the 49ers. However, it won’t be easy especially since the Seahawks run defense ranks 15th in rush yards per game with (109.4). Odds are Peterson doesn’t surpass last week’s run total and most likely will eclipse the 100 yard mark. But this is AP we’re talking about, so anything is possible.
Bold Prediction: Russell Wilson tosses 4 TD passes and runs for 75 yards.
