NFL Thursday Night Week 11: Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals Prediction and Analysis

The NFC West is arguably the best division in the NFL at the moment. Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks, the Kyler Murray-led Arizona Cardinals, and the Sean McVay-coached Los Angeles Rams have all outplayed the Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers in 2020.

The Seahawks and the Cardinals will go head-to-head for the second time this season on Thursday night. Pete Carroll’s boys will still be reeling from their 37-34 OT loss from a couple of weeks ago.

Will ‘DangeRuss get cookin’ tomorrow night or is it going to be another Kyler Murray – DeAndre Hopkins masterpiece? Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 11 Game Day predictions.

Seattle Seahawks gear up for crunch encounter on Thursday night

Pete Carroll and the Seahawks were having a stellar 2020 NFL campaign until their recent streak of bad results. Narrow losses to the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams have seen the Seattle-based franchise slip to 3rd in the NFC West Division table.

Quarterback Russell Wilson has fallen behind in the NFL MVP race after back-to-back sub-par displays. Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf will be crucial for the home team. However, Tyler Lockett was listed as ‘questionable’ in the latest injury report.

RB Chris Carson could also miss out on Thursday night’s game at the CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks defense has been hit with multiple injury concerns to Quinton Dunbar, Shaquill Griffin, and Neiko Thorpe.

Will Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals make it 2-for-2

What a season it’s turning out to be for Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals. The former Oklahoma Sooners man has starred under coach Kliff Kingsbury in 2020.

K1 has thrown for 2,300+ yards and rushed for another 500+ more. He has more than 20+ touchdowns (passing and rushing) from 9 games.

He will be the difference-maker for the Cardinals on Thursday. Experienced wideouts DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald will be part of the supporting cast at Murray’s disposal.

But the major task at hand will be reserved for the Arizona defense. They will need to be at their absolute best to stop the devastating duo of Russ Wilson and DK Metcalf.

Based on their last meeting, it is safe to say that this game will be a little too close to call. But we’re going to go with Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.

After 2 disappointing losses on the trot, we feel Russell Wilson and his band of speedsters (including, but not limited to, DK Metcalf) are out to prove a point against their doubters.

The home team will be under pressure to bag a win and go back to the summit of the NFC West Division table. Unless, of course, Kyler Murray and D-Hop intend otherwise. You can’t afford to miss this clash of the NFC West Titans.
