Sorry, Seahawks fans, but I can't help myself. The Seattle Seahawks were defeated at home by the Arizona Cardinals by a final score of 39-32. The Cardinals took a big early lead, blew it in ugly fashion, but bounced back strong late in the fourth quarter to get the huge divisional road win. The Cardinals improved to 7-2, while the Seahawks slipped to 4-5.
And yes, this means the Seahawks are only a game ahead of the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West. The Cardinals are the clear-cut team to beat, while the rest of the division ranges between mediocre and bad. This tweet might sum up my feelings about the Seahawks pretty well.
The 49ers lost a great HC, great coordinators, multiple Pro Bowl players, and benched their QB - and they're just a game worse than SEA. Wow— Rob Guerrera (@StatsOnFire) November 16, 2015
The 49ers will head north to face the Seahawks next week. I would not be surprised to see the 49ers get beaten rather thoroughly, but given how this Seahawks team is playing, who knows. I think the Seahawks pass rush will be too much, and Blaine Gabbert will have a bad game. But, given that the 49ers are scuffling along, it almost makes it more fun. There is nothing to lose going into this game. Well, a win loses draft positioning, but you get what I mean. I want better draft positioning, but a stunning upset of the Seahawks would crack me up to no end.
