Which matchups favor the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11 when they travel to take on the Seattle Seahawks for an NFC West battle?

This weekend, the Arizona Cardinals will head to Lumen Field to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Once again, the Cardinals may or may not have star quarterback Kyler Murray, who will be a game-time decision.

If Murray can’t go, then Arizona will turn to either Colt McCoy or Chris Streveler, both of whom saw action last week against the Carolina Panthers. The Cardinals will also be without running backs Chase Edmonds (on IR) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who will miss his third straight contest.

Despite the injuries, Arizona is facing a Seahawks team that put zero points on the board last week against the Green Bay Packers. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson looked lost for once in his successful career, and if it wasn’t for the defense keeping things close for most of the game, things could have turned ugly for the Seahawks.

The sense of urgency level has risen for both teams. The Cardinals, 8-2, are in a battle for the NFC’s top playoff seed. Seattle, 3-6, might be down to their last opportunity to keep their playoff hopes realistic. Arizona will be looking to take advantage of the Seahawks early. Here are three favorable matchups the Cardinals must take advantage of.
