The Arizona Cardinals travel to the northwest to complete their 2018 regular season
When Bruce Arians was head coach, the Arizona Cardinals won four of five games at CenturyLink Field, home to the Seattle Seahawks. Don’t look for that success to continue with Steve Wilks.
The Cardinals are a team that looks like they can’t wait for the season to end. They’ve looked that way for weeks now. They are also a beaten up team.
The Seahawks meanwhile are getting ready to go to the playoffs once again, this time as an NFC Wild Card participant. They still have seeding to play for but is that important to them?
The game is at 2:25 p.m on FOX 10 in Phoenix with Sam Rosen and Brady Quinn on the call. It is one of eight late window games on Sunday.
The Seahawks have contended that they will play everyone, they won’t rest any starters. It might start out that way. Look for them to take control early so they can rest starters for the Wild Card playoffs next weekend.
Getting a 5th seed still gives them a chance to host a playoff game at some point, albeit a distant chance. The 6th seed gives them a playoff ride on the road all the way.
As for the Cardinals, it has been a dismal season. They play well in the first half of the first quarter and so predictable week after week, it’s all downhill from there.
Quarterback Josh Rosen will start. That also has been a point of contention over the last two weeks. Wilks wants him to get the reps. Fans want to see him avoid any injury that could linger into the offseason or longer.
Certainly it would be good to get backup Mike Glennon in at some point, see if he is someone the Cardinals want to continue with going into 2019. The Cardinals are already getting good looks at a lot of guys you never dreamed would be on this roster at the end of the season.
