As you watch Sunday Night Football live online free or on TV tonight, you’ll see the top two teams in the NFC West face-off in a do-or-die game. Though the 11-3 Arizona Cardinals have clinched their division, they’re still fighting with the 10-4 Seattle Seahawks to clinch a spot in the playoffs. And while the Cardinals have the better record, the Seahawks have all the momentum headed into SNF tonight. You can watch the Cardinals vs Seahawks game live on TV or watch Seahawks vs Cardinals game online free Sunday Night Football live stream as well.
Kickoff for Sunday Night Football tonight between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals is scheduled for 8:30 EST / 5:30 PST. The Seahawks Cardinals game live is being played in University of Phoenix Stadium. The Seahawks are 7.5-point favorites over the Cards.
The fact that Arizona’s 11-4 going into tonight’s Seahawks game live is incredible. Starting QB Carson Palmer has been out for weeks with injury, and now backup QB Drew Stanton is listed as questionable for tonight’s Sunday Night Football game with his own knee injury. Third-stringer Ryan Lindley will get the start as we watch Seahawks live online free against the Cardinals.
Lindley will have a tough go of it against Seattle’s resurgent Legion of Boom defense. Seattle began the season struggling on defense, but the Seahawks now have Bobby Wagner, Kam Chancellor and Byron Maxwell back on the field with All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman. That’s not immaterial as we watch Cardinals game online free tonight on Sunday Night Football.
After holding the high-octane Eagles to just 139 net yards two weeks ago, Seattle dominated the San Francisco 49ers last weekend and eliminated Colin Kaepernick and the Niners from playoff contention. Against a third-stringer like Lindley, Seattle’s Legion of Boom will either cause a lot of turnovers or force the Cardinals to make RB Andre Ellington carry the load.
Seattle may want running back Marshawn Lynch to do some heavy rushing as well, as he’s guided the Seahawks to the league’s top-ranked rushing offense. However, the Cardinals have the NFL’s sixth-ranked rushing defense and allow just 90.4 yards rushing per game. That stout rushing defense could force Seattle QB Russell Wilson to the air as we watch Cardinals game online free or on Sunday Night Football TV tonight.
Seattle may frankly have better results passing anyway. Arizona allows almost 260 passing yards per game, 29th in the league. Seahawks QB Wilson has proven a better game manager than passer this season, tossing 18 TDs and passing for 2,897 yards. Still, Wilson will find ways to exploit Arizona’s secondary holes as the Seahawks fight for the NFC West crown.
