Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Seahawks 27, Cardinals 23

"The Seahawks have enjoyed defying the odds the last few years, losing when people expected a win, winning when people expected a loss. Seattle might seem like a dead team walking after the Steelers game. But it'll be no surprise if they pull this one off, and then hope for the best."

Matt Calkins, Seattle Times: Seahawks 24, Cardinals 20

"A more talented roster and pure desperation will vault Seattle over Arizona. Might not be enough for a playoff spot, but it will give the Seahawks a winning record for the second straight year."

Adam Jude, Seattle Times: Seahawks 31, Cardinals 26

"Something strange always seems to happen to the Seahawks when they travel to Arizona, and why would this time be any different? Prediction here is the Seahawks, even with their shaky run defense, figure out a way to beat the Cardinals, but they'll miss out on the playoffs when Green Bay holds of the Bears at Lambeau Field."

Victoria Hernandez, USA Today: Seahawks 23, Cardinals 19

"The Seahawks have a lot of tools on offense that have sometimes clicked together, sometimes not. Injuries haven't helped either. But with a playoff spot on the line, they'll be able to rebound from last week's loss against a Cardinals team that upset the Eagles but has struggled to find its own identity this season."

Safid Deen, USA Today: Seahawks 27, Cardinals 17

"As impressive as the Cardinals' win over the Eagles was last week, Arizona could fall from having the No. 4 pick to the No. 7 pick in the draft with a win against Seattle. This is also the Seahawks' last chance to reach the playoffs. Seattle should win a close one."

Jordan Mendoza, USA Today: Cardinals 24, Seahawks 21

"Arizona pulled off a stunner in Philadelphia and they aren't done ruining seasons just yet. Seattle got punched in the mouth by Pittsburgh, and it sees its season end at the hands of Kyler Murray."

Bill Bender, Sporting News: Cardinals 28, Seahawks 24

"The Cardinals pulled off an impressive upset against Philadelphia, and Kyler Murray has a 70% completion percentage the last three weeks against the 49ers, Bears and Eagles. Arizona coach Jonathan Gannon can build with that heading into his second season – and a victory against the Seahawks would be a nice topper. The Seahawks are 3-5 S/U on the road this season."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Cardinals 27, Seahawks 23

"Seattle needs this game to have a playoff chance. The Cardinals are playing out the string, but as they showed in beating the Eagles last week they are far from thinking about a resort beach. Look for the Cardinals to play hard and win this one to end Seattle's playoff hopes."
