The Seattle Seahawks host divisional foe Arizona Sunday at CenturyLink Field. The game starts at 4:05 ET on FOX. Seattle clinches the NFC West with a win against the number one-ranked rushing defense. Since Seattle has a run-first mentality on offense, this game looks to be one heck of a battle. Marshawn Lynch could be limited on Sunday by a stout Arizona run defense. (Photo credit: Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) If Marshawn Lynch does indeed get limited on the ground, and it seems likely given that Lynch hasn’t exactly racked up yardage the past couple weeks, it’ll be up to Russell Wilson to beat Arizona through the air. He certainly did so when these two teams faced each other earlier in the year in Arizona. Since the game tomorrow is in Seattle, where Wilson has been absolute dynamite in his first two seasons as the Seahawks’ starter, he should be able to lead his team to another victory. Carson Palmer has thrown for a ton of yards this season, as he’s approaching 4,000 on the year, but he’s also known for getting baited into throwing interceptions. Since interceptions are the specialty of the Legion of Boom, a couple turnovers won’t be surprising. The only question is who is going to grab them. Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell snagged two apiece against the Giants, so maybe that means Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor will be the secondary’s heroes this weekend. The Legion of Boom is so balanced in terms of talent that any one of these guys can end up with two picks at the end of the day. I like how Seattle looks defending the run against Arizona’s Andre Ellington. It’s very clear that Arizona leans on Carson Palmer to carry the offense, so Seattle’s front seven should hold Ellington to only a meager handful of yards. The Cardinals have played much better since the Seahawks trounced them on the road, and while they’ll fall just short of making the playoffs this year, they’re going to play their tails off. It’s unlikely that the Seahawks will have the same amount of success against them the second time around. Seattle just needs to come into this game expecting a dogfight so as to not get surprised early. The NFC West is within the Seahawks’ grasp, and if they just take care of business, they’ll get to celebrate a great achievement by tomorrow evening.
