The Cardinals will come away with a 26-23 victory
Cardinals fans may be looking for more offense from Palmer and company but this may not be the game we see that breakout performance. As long as the Cardinals win, that’s all that matters.
Both teams could struggle to find the end zone consistently. The difference on Sunday night will be field goals. The Cardinals will hit four of them and Seattle three.
Nothing would make any of us feel happier than to see Palmer instead throw four or five touchdowns. That could still happen but based on recent play of both teams the 26-23 score should end up being closer to the truth.
This doesn’t mean we won’t see offense but both teams could struggle to find the end zone. Both teams struggled offensively against the Los Angeles Rams and it cost them. Now they get to face each other for the first time.
These predictions are just that. The Cardinals still win but it is entirely possible we could see a shootout as well like the 39-32 game we saw in Seattle last November.
