Arizona Cardinals: 5 bold predictions vs Seattle Seahawks
Calais Campbell will sack Russell Wilson twice
He’s due. Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell has two sacks on the season coming into Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks.
On Sunday night, expect him to take Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson down at least twice. Campbell has made a living of chasing Wilson around but often coming close without bringing him down.
A couple of years ago in a matchup in Seattle, Campbell ‘almost’ sacked him seven times. Wilson though was able to escape several of those times. Campbell did get credit for three sacks that day. Since that week 12 game in 2014, he has not sacked Wilson.
Campbell has been coming close. Although a close sack isn’t a real NFL statistic, Campbell has to be near the top of NFL pass rushers in that category. He creates great pressure but often comes up empty. This season has been no exception.
Wilson is tough to bring down, so its not always all on Campbell but the Cardinals need him to step it up a notch on Sunday night. Something tells me it will be a special night for CC.
