Kyler Murray vs. Seahawks passing defense

Kyler Murray returned to form against the Cowboys to continue his perfect record inside AT&T Stadium. This week, he faces the second-worst passing defense in the NFL.

The Seahawks enter the regular-season finale as one of two teams that have given up over 4,300 passing yards, and they are one of three teams with over 600 passing attempts against them.

While they have trouble in the defensive backfield, the Seahawks also have a tough time getting to the quarterback, having logged just 29 sacks all season, ranking 28th in the league. And despite Murray’s struggles throwing the ball over the month of December, he has made plays with his legs, rushing for 241 yards since his return from injury.

Murray’s versatility, coupled with struggles in the Seattle secondary and pass rush, will make this a tough outing for the Seahawks.
