This could be the most physical game of the season. Both teams are staunch on defense with aggressive schemes, and these are pretty fierce opponents.
An Arizona victory puts it in command of the NFC West, but with a daunting schedule ahead: Seven of the Cardinals' final eight games are against teams currently at .500 or better. They are equipped for such a challenge on offense now that Chris Johnson has brought some reliability at running back, and Carson Palmer is the top-rated passer in the NFC at 110.2.
The Seahawks have shown some vulnerability at home for the first time in years, but have matched up well with the Cardinals. Key offseason acquisition TE Jimmy Graham is coming on, so now the Seahawks need to get Beast Mode, Marshawn Lynch, back into his powerful running style.
