Cardinals (6-2) at Seahawks (4-4)
8:30 p.m. Line: Seahawks by 3
When these teams met in Seattle last season, Arizona was 9-1 and held a three-game lead in the N.F.C. West on the second-place Seahawks. Seattle won that game, 19-3, and did not lose again until falling to the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Cardinals, though, lost three of their last five games and finished second in the division to Seattle. You can bet that the fact that this game represented a turning point for both teams last season is on the minds of their coaches heading into this one.
It should be noted that the Cardinals lost quarterback Carson Palmer before that 2014 game, and his absence led to some unstable play at quarterback that contributed greatly to their late-season slide. Arizona is 19-4 in the last 23 games started by Palmer dating to 2013. The Seahawks’ Pete Carroll, who coached the 35-year-old Palmer at Southern California, has certainly taken notice.
