The Arizona Cardinals are one of the most improved teams in the NFL this season. The team enters week 16 very much alive in the playoff picture with a record of 9-5 on the season. They have played very well down the stretch as the team has six wins over their past seven games. They went on the road and knocked the Tennessee Titans out of the playoffs last week. Arizona is the top rushing defense in the NFL this season as they allow just 83 yards per game. They rank 8th in scoring defense as opponents score just 20.8 points per game against their defense. The offense is much improved since the Kurt Warner days. Carson Palmer is more comfortable now and has reduced his mistakes running this Cardinals offense. In the playoff picture Arizona trails the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers by 1 game for an NFC wildcard berth. Because New Orleans and Carolina plays on Sunday it means that if Arizona can beat the Seahawks they will be in a flat footed tie with the Panthers and Saints loser for the final playoff berth. Arizona with an outright win against Carolina this season owns the tiebreaker so a Panthers loss earlier in the afternoon puts the Cardinals complete control of their playoff destiny. We have two good defenses competing in Seattle on Sunday and the points are too high in a game that most likely be decided by a touchdown or less like we see many times in division games.
