If Seattle is playing at home, there will be non-calls & wrong calls by the zebras. Favoring the Hawks of course.
I expect a knock down drag out on Jan 3, 2016. Seahawks and Cardinals know each other well, The game means a lot to the Cards, since it may decide home field advantage throughout the playoffs. It'll be a game worth watching. The Seahawks may have Lynch and Chancellor back. Both of these teams have grown since their last meeting.
How things change. Az will sweep the Hawks this season.
The Hawks are not doing so great this year and there quarterback has thrown 2 interceptions this year so they are going to lose the Cards have new players
24-13 Seahawks... with 4 sacks and 2 picks
Sorry for such a conservative prediction of a low-scoring, defensive battle. Don't get me wrong! I was not disappointed with the Seahawks 600 yards of offense and 35-6 win over the number one seed in the NFC(before the game) and one of the best defenses in the NFL (after the Seahawks); just amazed! Now the Seahawks are on to week 17 and the next championship game against another premier defense: the Rams. I am certain that the Seahawks understand the significance of this game. Go Hawks!
Defensive battle, but Seahawks will probably score from 17 to 23 points, while the Cardinals will be held to field goals only and no more than 12 points.
Cardinals seem to be in a slump and the Seahawks on a surge. The NFC West Title is currently in the hands of these two teams, and will likely rest upon the outcome of this matchup in Week 16. Let's see what the standings are after week 14. It may not be as meaningful as I thought it would. Frankly, I'm more worried about the Week 17 game against the Rams who have recently experienced a metamorphosis.
Cardinals will cover this game.
Hawks are 6.5 favored.
After last week Cards are now avg.-ing nearly 25 points per game offence.... Ironrank is saying 16???
Last time we played. We had a new coach, new offence, and pretty much a whole new team learning the BA way. I saw the Hawks nearly stumble a few times this season. I say challenge because... every one knows The Hawks record at home is LIGHTS OUT! This is a huge game for the Cards I hope that shows up on the field. GO CARDS!
I'm a lifelong Hawks fan, and if I had to bet on this one, I'd bet on the Hawks. But a Cardinal victory wouldn't at all shock me. The Cardinals have a lot more to play for than the Hawks, and that matters a lot (remember the San Francisco game?). Plus, the Cards are red hot, and have plenty of talent, especially on defense. The Cards would undoubtedly be a playoff team in the AFC; it's their misfortune to be in the toughest division of the toughest conference in football. So as I say, I give the Seahawks the edge, but this game is by no means a "lock".
Cards by 3, hmm okay...
At the very best case scenario for the Cardinals, that's what they'll lose by.
You say it'll be a challenge? That's a pretty big understatement. I realize it's the NFL and anything can happen, but to say it's only a challenge is a little cocky. Playing against the current best team in the NFL, at a home field that they haven't lost at in 15 games, the chances of the Cardinals winning this game are nigh on impossible
The Hawks already beat the Cardinals in Arizona earlier this year, and have only improved on both sides of the ball since then. Now the Cardinals have to come to Seattle to try to make a game out of it? Sorry Cards, you're a decent team and all, but in Century Link Field, you don't really stand a chance. Just look what happened to the Saints.
well right now hawks are favored by 10.5pts at home game, you guys wont think they will cover it?
( Cards Fan ) Hawks are a great team this year no doubt. This will be a challenge for the Cards. I just wanted to point out Cards are averaging nearly 22 points offence per game. NOT 16. Thanks GO CARDS
