Sunday night football thread: Rooting for a tie. Again.

The Seahawks face the Cardinals

Now that the 49ers won, we root for a tie, right? The Seattle Seahawks are 3.5-point road favorites against the Arizona Cardinals. While Arizona blew out Dallas last week on national TV, you never got the feeling that Kyler Murray or that offense, in general, played well. They’re going to have to play much better if the Cardinals want to beat this high-flying Seahawks offense, who are coming off a bye.

Speaking of Seattle, their defense hasn’t been great this year, despite being undefeated. Seattle is 30th in yards per drive, plays per drive, and 24th in drive success rate. The Cardinals will have opportunities to move the ball. The question is whether Kyler is accurate. Kenyan Drake should have success, as Arizona has the second-best rushing offense in the NFL, per DVOA. That’s surprising. Are we in for a shootout? Or could these be a snoozer like when the last time these two teams played on Sunday night when the score was a tie at 6-6.
