In their first matchup of the season with the Seattle Seahawks, can the Arizona Cardinals get a win and maintain their lead in the NFC West?
After a pleasantly surprising performance in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers, the Arizona Cardinals came back down to earth last weekend when they took on the Carolina Panthers.
Unlike their win over the 49ers, not having Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins out on the field was a much bigger deal for the Cardinals when they faced the Panthers. Carolina took advantage of Arizona’s two best offensive players being inactive and it resulted in an easy win for the Panthers.
Murray has a chance to return to the field this week against the Seattle Seahawks, and if he does, the Cardinals have a good shot to get back on track after an ugly loss to Carolina.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks prediction Week 11
For the first time since 2011, the Seahawks are sitting with a 3-6 record after their first nine games of the season.
Russell Wilson missing time due to injury has played a big part in Seattle’s disappointing start. But even during the six matchups with him in the starting lineup this year, the Seahawks have still only managed to come away with two victories.
Last week likely served as a wake-up call for Arizona that they at least need Murray back on the field if they’re going to remain in contention for the No. 1 seed in the NFC this season. Let’s just assume the Cardinals will have their starting signal-caller back in uniform on Sunday, and if this actually does end up being the case, Arizona should be able to leave the field with a win over Seattle.
Prediction: Cardinals win
