This is a short week for the Seattle Seahawks as they will face the Arizona Cardinals today for their Thursday night match up of the season.
I don’t know much about the Cardinals, except for QB Kurt Warner’s comeback run with them when he led them to their last Super Bowl in 2008 and WR Larry Fitzgerald on my fantasy football team plays for them.
Here are three things to know about the Hawks’ opponent going into the game:
1) In the Past
The Seahawks and Cardinals are NFC West division rivals, with the Seahawks currently in first place, going 5-1 on the season, while the Cardinals are tied for last place with the St. Louis Rams at 3-3. It’s been awhile since the Cardinals have dominated the NFC – as I mentioned before, since Warner was their QB during the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
Seattle and Arizona met twice last year during Weeks One and Fourteen. The results were lopsided. The first meeting was a home game for the Cardinals and it was close one, with Arizona...

Luke Wilson Facebook Page
Seattle Seahawks rookie tight end Luke Wilson is used to being overlooked as he was the backup tight end during his college days at Rice University. Ironically enough, Wilson was playing behind fellow rookie and current rival Vance McDonald, who was a second round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers. Although Wilson played second fiddle to McDonald...
The Seattle Seahawks officially recorded the team’s 6th win of the season by beating the Arizona Cardinals 34-22, despite Wilson fumbling the football 3 times and losing it twice. Wilson was able to overcome the mistake of putting the football on the field. He threw for 3 touchdowns and he had plenty of help from his running back Marshawn Lynch, who showed he can be a force for...
On paper, the Arizona Cardinals are a good football team. They have receivers that can make plays, a defense that can win games without much offensive production, but one thing continues to hold the team back in the post-Kurt Warner era. Quarterback play.
When the Cardinals brought in Carson Palmer, it looked like a good move. For the first time in a long time, Palmer would have...

Once again, the Seattle Seahawks will be without starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner. Having a high ankle sprain and a short week to recover did not bode well for number 54, who will be unable suit up Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals. Wagner, also did not feature in the Seahawks 20-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans in front...
Arizona's offense was very bad last season and not much, if any, better through seven games this year.
A new, offensive-minded coach and a new quarterback have yet to solve the issue that has been at the heart of the franchise's problems since Kurt Warner retired after the 2009 season.
Now coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer are looking at a schedule over the...
Marshawn Lynch was just doing what every fantasy owner of the Seahawks running back wanted to do when on 3rd and goal at the 1 yard line, Darrell Bevell dialed up a passing play instead of feeding Lynch.

Seattle Seahawks (5-1) at Arizona Cardinals (3-3)
Ordinarily, the rule of thumb is to go against the Seahawks on the road. However, lately they’ve been a covering machine no matter where they are, including a 6-2 ATS record in their last 8 road games. Going back to 2007, they are 22-32 ATS on the road, but they have also never really had a problem covering as road favorites in...
[via]Last season, the Cardinals pulled an upset over Seattle in the Pink Taco. Of course, that was Week 1, when strange things can and frequently do happen, not to mention Russell Wilson’s first career start. The second meeting, however, was more in line with expectations.No matter the locale – even Wichita! – Seattle has to be the favorite against their NFC West counterparts...
Not pretty, but we got it done
Perhaps it was the star power on the Seahawks sidelines that distracted the players, or maybe even the fact that the Tennessee Titans were using a backup QB.
Whatever the reason ended up being, the Seahawks sure didn’t look like they did the last time we saw them at CenturyLink Field.
Is it just me or does this team seem to be going backwards?
Russell Wilson was a loser in his NFL debut in Arizona 13 months ago.
Not so Thursday night.
Wilson threw for three touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cardinals 34-22.
The Seahawks (6-1) intercepted two of Carson Palmer's passes, converting both into touchdowns, and sacked him seven times, twice by Chris Clemons, who had been questionable...
Seahawks win 34-22
I have watched a lot of Arizona Cardinals’ games over the years but I can’t remember the last time I heard the University of Phoenix Stadium as loud as it was tonight while the Cardinals were on offense. It really sounded like the Seahawks were the home team, not the Cardinals.
Seattle played like it too as they jumped out to an early 14 point lead.
Percy Harvin will be suiting back up for the Seahawks according to Ian Rapaport. Not sure if the exciting wideout will be available to play on Monday night yet or not.

On Monday, Will Ferrell returned to his alma mater, USC, to speak with students at a charity event for “Cancer For College,” a scholarship program for young cancer survivors. The program was created by Ferrell’s fraternity brother and Trojan baseball alum Craig Pollard, who went through a second bout with Hodgkins-Lymphoma.
Harvin close: Percy’s imminent addition to the Seattle offense may be the final nail to a Seattle Super Bowl bid.
If you think the Seattle Seahawks (6-1) are a very good football team after Thursday night’s 34-22 beatdown of CARSON PALMER and the Arizona Cardinals, guess what: they’re about to get even better. That’s because heralded off season acquisition PERCY HARVIN is...
