Why the Seahawks can cover
Russell Wilson had a standout game in Seattle's 37-34 overtime loss at Arizona in Week 7, completing 33-of-50 pass attempts for 388 yards and three touchdowns, all to wide receiver Tyler Lockett. The 31-year-old Wilson, who leads the NFL with 28 TD passes, has thrown for 27 scores and run for another in 17 career starts against the Cardinals. This year, he has recorded at least three touchdown tosses in his four home games.
Lockett, who is battling a knee injury that coach Pete Carroll stated was not serious, leads Seattle with 58 receptions and is tied for sixth in the league with seven TD catches. Just ahead of him with eight is teammate DK Metcalf, who ranks third in the NFL with 816 yards. The Seahawks have the top scoring offense in the league (32.2 points) and are third in both total offense (405.9 yards) and pass offense (289.4).
Why the Cardinals can cover
Arizona, which trailed Buffalo 23-9 in the third quarter, had a 217-73 advantage in rushing yards. Kenyan Drake gained 100 yards on 16 carries to increase his season total to a team-high 612, 32 shy of the career-best he recorded in 2017 with Miami. Murray ran for 61 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Chase Edmonds rushed eight times for 56 yards.
Murray is second on the Cardinals in rushing with 604 yards and leads the NFL with an average of 6.9 per carry. The 2019 first overall draft pick ranks second in the league with 10 rushing touchdowns, which ties him with Johnny Lujack (1950) for most by a quarterback in his team's first nine games of a season. Murray also is the first signal-caller in the Super Bowl era and fourth in NFL history to run for a score in five consecutive contests.
