The first of two games between the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks takes place on Sunday at State Farm Stadium
The Arizona Cardinals host the Seattle Seahawks in the first NFC West matchup of the season. The Cardinals struggled on defense last week, losing 38-20 to the Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks lost at home to the New Orleans Saints 33-27, coming up short on a comeback attempt.
So what will happen this week? The Seahawks won both games last season, each by a field goal at the end of the game. Here are three bold predictions for Sunday.
Kyler Murray will rush for over 100-yards
Murray finally started using his legs last week against the Panthers. He rushed 8 times for 69-yards. The good news is most of it was planned run plays.
He still found a way to throw the ball 43 times but designed run plays are what the Cardinals fans want to see. Giving him the opportunity to run out in space because it was called and not a scramble running away from trouble, which will continue to happen as well, will pay dividends for the offense.
Looks for Murray to continue more of that this week against the Seahawks. In fact, look for him to hit the century mark on the ground.
