3 Bold Predictions: Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks – Week 11
Arizona will establish the run
And rush for over 150 yards. A stark contrast to last Sunday, when for some strange reason, the offense forgot they had a solid committee of running backs. Even without Chase Edmonds, Eno Benjamin has done a fantastic job over the past two weeks picking up the slack.
Benjamin has dealt with a groin injury per the latest injury report, but he has seen limited action in practice as of Wednesday. Conner has had a great season so far after many considered him to be the RB2 in Arizona when he signed with the Cardinals. He hasn’t exactly been a revelation, but he has become a solid contributor on offense.
And while the Seahawks have only allowed 4.1 yards per carry in 2021, they rank 22nd in rushing defense. Whether Murray, McCoy, or Streveler line up under center on Sunday (let’s leave nothing to chance), all three quarterbacks must rely on the run because of either injuries or limitations.
Look for the Cardinals to learn from their mistakes last week when they gave the ball to their running backs just 16 times in route to their worst loss of the season. And look for Conner and hopefully Benjamin to carry the team.
