Check out which side the local and national media are predicting to win when the Seattle Seahawks match up against the Arizona Cardinals.

Elliot Harrison, NFL.com: Seahawks 20, Cardinals 17

Harrison: It's fun to think that rookie QB Josh Rosen could resurrect this Cardinals offense, but unless Steve Wilks' staff gets David Johnson more involved, and Larry Fitzgerald is healthy, I'm not sure Arizona has the horses to keep up with Russell Wilson. Not that Seattle will score 30, but somewhere in the low-20s should be enough, given the Cards' offensive issues. Expect Chris Carson to get 20-to-25 carries again.

Brady Henderson, ESPN.com: Seahawks 21, Cardinals 17

Henderson: For all the misfortune the Seahawks have experienced at State Farm Stadium in recent years -- Super Bowl XLIX and the franchise-altering injuries to Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor -- they've gone 4-0-1 over their past five regular-season games there. That the Seahawks already have eight takeaways is evidence of how well their defense has played despite all the key losses and new faces, so you have to like their chances of forcing Josh Rosen into some mistakes in his first career start.

Josh Weinfuss, ESPN.com: Seahawks 27, Cardinals 10

Weinfuss: The Cardinals offense, worst in the NFL, hopes to get an injection of yards and points by starting Rosen. But will that be enough? Arizona faces a Seahawks defense that has the best interception rate in the NFL. The Cardinals haven't beaten the Seahawks at home since 2012.

Pete Prisco, CBSSports.com: Cardinals 20, Seahawks 17

Prisco: Josh Rosen makes his first NFL start here for the Cardinals, who have been lifeless on offense. It's the right move. He might have some tough going early, but he will respond and play well. The Seahawks played better last week, but that was at home. They are a different team on the road. Rosen will win his first start.

Michael David-Smith, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 17, Cardinals 10

MDS: In Josh Rosen's first NFL start, he's going to have a tough time against a Seahawks defense that is starting to round into form after an offseason of changes.

Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 23, Cardinals 13

Florio: The Seahawks still have hope for a playoff berth. The Cardinals are justing hoping to get a win or two.
