Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

When: Sunday January 3, 2016

Game time: 2:25 pm

TV: Fox

This game was a disaster last season with the Seahawks coming into town and crushing the Carson Palmer and Andre Ellington-less Cardinals 35-6.  If the Cardinals want to prove they are amongst the elite, they need to win this game at home.  It is the last game of the season and the last chance to possibly win the NFC West.  There is a good chance that these teams will be in striking distance of each other at this point.

At the very least this game could mean a playoff spot for the Cardinals.  My best guess is that it might be decided a week earlier but you never know.  Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch can’t be allowed to come into University of Phoenix Stadium and put on another show.

The only loss at home last season was to these Seahawks.  They are the last home game of the season for the second year in a row.  Let’s not let them come in and destroy us again.  The last Cardinals victory over the Seahawks at home was in 2012.
