The Seattle Seahawks travel to Glendale Arizona this evening to take on the Arizona Cardinals in an NFC match-up with playoff implications. Please join us here to discuss this game or any of the other action the NFL today.

Tonight's game is one of the better match-ups of the week. The Seahawks go in to Arizona tonight one game back of the Cardinals for the NFC West lead. The Cardinals have already clinched a playoff spot but they can also clinch the NFC West title this evening and home field advantage in the NFC with a win tonight. The Cardinals have managed to do what many say can not be done in the NFL, win without a proven quarterback after starter Carson Palmer was injured at the beginning of November. Ryan Lindley will be the starter for tonight's contest and Arizona will once again lean heavily on their dominant defense. The Cardinals also enter the night undefeated at home in 2014.

A win over the Arizona Cardinals this evening would put the Seahawks back in control of the race for the division title as they would then hold the head to head tie-breaker. The Seahawks defeated Arizona in their first meeting this season in Seattle by a score of 19 to 3 on November 23rd. Following their win over the Cardinals the Seahawks have gone on a four game winning streak. The Seahawks can also clinch a spot in the playoffs with a win over Arizona and a loss or tie this week by the Packers, Eagles or Lions. While the Cardinals have struggled at the quarterback position Seattle starter Russell Wilson has put up a 101.2 rating over their four game winning streak.
