Arizona sacks Wilson five times

When these two teams last faced off, the Cardinals made life miserable for Russell Wilson; sacking him four times for 27 yards. The defense also held Wilson to an 80.1 quarterback rating, his third-lowest of the season.

The Cardinals had Wilson’s number in Week 11. For Week 18, look for them to once again make life rough for one of the league’s most iconic quarterbacks. Not only will the Cardinals sack Wilson five times; they will also hold Wilson to under 200 passing yards; something that has happened on five different occasions in 2021; the Cardinals nearly accomplished the feat in Week 11 when they held Wilson to just 207 passing yards.

The Cardinals’ defense was relentless in that game, and it will show the fan base why they may have once again turned back into the team they were in September and October. And if that’s the case, Sunday’s defensive performance will make for a nice little preview of what may be to come on Wildcard Weekend.
