For the number of games in an NFL season that take place on Thursday night, more often than not we find ourselves as fans not being attracted to the matchups that are scheduled to take place. Week 11 is going to be much different when division rivals meet in the 6-3 Cardinals visiting the 6-3 Seahawks for division supremacy.
“Is Kyler Murray ahead of Russell Wilson in the MVP race?”
In their first matchup of the season back in week 7, Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson put on a dual for the ages, each rushing for 60+ yards and throwing three touchdowns a piece. The two are neck and neck in the MVP race, and Thursday night could be a strong sign of who has the upper hand.
Just two week ago, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was the unanimous MVP race leader after being able to lead his team to high scoring, exciting victories and a 6-1 start. Now, combatting injury and lack of defensive assistance in Seattle, Wilson has dropped two straight games and has thrown 4 interceptions in that time span.
The Arizona Cardinals are a young exciting team with a high-flying offence that can compete with all of the elite offences in the NFL today. The have daring similarities to the Seahawks on the offensive side of the ball.
Where Pete Carroll believes the game will be won will be in the trenches. Running the ball, ground and pound, allowing for the Seahawks passing game to open up thanks to a successful run game.
The Cardinals took down the Seahawks earlier this season in week 7, 37-34 in Overtime, a game where the Seahawks mistakes led them to beat themselves and leave the desert with a loss.
