Seahawks Player to Watch; Marshawn Lynch
Marshawn Lynch is one of the best backs in the game. He will run that ball down the defenses throats and shake his way to extra yards. Against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, he ran for 77 yards and a couple of scores. He laso caught 4 passes for 78 yards. He has 487 rushing yards for 5 touchdowns.
Cardinals Player to Watch: Larry Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald has been looking for that quarterback that could throw him the ball. Carson Palmer is doing a better job than the other quarterbacks that he has had in the past. On Sunday, Fitzgerald had 6 receptions for a season-high 117 yards. He has a sore hamstring and hopes to be ready for the game on Thursday.
Matchup to Watch: Carson Palmer vs Richard Sherman
Carson has 11 interceptions this season and Richard Sherman is one of the best at taking the ball away. Sherman has 3 interceptions this year and will be looking to add to that number with Carson tossing the rock. Will Sherman be able to add to that interception count.
The Seahawks want to have home field advantage going into the playoffs and will need to figure out how to get wins against this division opponent on the road. Division games are always tough and the Cardinals will fight till the end. There just seems to be so many weapons for the Seahawks. Seahawks will pull this one off.
