Once again this week only one team in the NFC west has a REAL shot at the playoffs the San Francisco 49ers. The Seattle Seahawks led by Tarvaris Jackson and Marshawn Lynch, and the Arizona Cardinals led by Kevin Kolb and Larry Fitzgerald hope to change things this week. Here's our Week 9 NFC West previews…

Lynch putting run-game struggles on himself

Marshawn Lynch could deflect Seattle's inability to establish any sort of run game, blaming it on a young and inexperienced offensive line or the Seahawks' inability to stay on the field.
