The Arizona Cardinals will be hosting the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. Seattle is coming off a win against the Tennessee Titans, while the hometown Cardinals suffered a loss to the San Francisco 49ers that was played much closer than the final score suggests.
The Cardinals are in last place in the NFC West, but still sit at .500 with a 3-3 record, which would be good enough for first place in the NFC East. Arizona is twelfth in points allowed, but just 25th in points scored. The Cardinals could have a tough time scoring on the Seahawks, who rank fourth in the league in points allowed. Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer has a problem with turnovers this season, throwing an interception on 5.0% of his pass attempts. Seattle’s defense has already nine interceptions, tied for the second highest total through six games. To counter, the Cardinals could try to get rookie Andre Ellington more involved in the game plan. Ellington has 31 more yards from scrimmage than Rashard Mendenhall despite Mendenhall having 46 more touches on the season.
Arizona Cardinals tickets for this game are averaging $131 ($41 get-in price), a 19% increase over the average Cardinals home ticket this season. On the other hand, this is a 28% less than the normal price for Seattle Seahawks tickets on the road in 2013, a team that is in very high demand wherever they play. This will be the only prime time game for the Cardinals this season. The get-in price is currently $41. Prices for the game are also up 2% in the last week. The last time the two teams played at University of Phoenix Stadium was last year’s season opener. Ticket prices for that game were just $89, 32% cheaper than this year’s game.
Arizona does not have the home field advantage the Seahawks do, but the Cardinals are 2-0 at home so far this season. Arizona beat Seattle at home last season as the first game in their 4-0 start, but the Seahawks have only lost five games since then.
