Welcome to our game preview and open game thread. Join other Seahawks and talk about the game as it’s happening in the comments section. As always, opposing fans are more than welcome to join in. 


The Seahawks are away from the comfortable confines of CenturyLink for this matchup against the Cardinals and even with their improved road play over the past season and a half, this is a game the Seahawks can not take lightly if they truly plan on making a run to the Super Bowl.

It’s only been four days since the Seahawks beat a weak Titans team at home in what turned out to be a closer game than it should have been. The Cardinals are a dangerous team, especially at home, and the Seahawks will be missing a few key lineman.

Chris Clemons likely wont see the field because of an elbow injury and tackle Breno Giacomini is still recovering from a serious knee injury. Linebacker Bobby Wagner is also out (ankle).

The Seahawks do have a fully healthy Legion of Boom that gets to face Carson Palmer, a quarterback who loves to make risky passes.

With both teams playing on just four days rest, expect a low scoring game, unlike the 58-0 whooping the Seahawks handed the Cardinals at the end of last season.

Seattle opened up a 6.5 favorite at the beginning of the week but the spread moved closer to 4.5 as the week progressed. The Cardinals are 7-1 against the spread when facing the Seahawks in Arizona, as odds sites are reporting. A full betting recap can be found here.
