The Seattle Seahawks take on the Arizona Cardinals for Week 7 at Lumen Field. Take a look at what local and national media are predicting for Sunday's game. Click here to learn how to watch, listen, and stream the action.

Seth Walder,*Seahawks 34, Cardinals 20*

"Cardinals cornerback Marco Wilson. He has allowed 2.3 yards per coverage snap this season, fifth most among cornerbacks with at least 100 coverage snaps, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Arizona needs more from him if it's going to hang with Seattle."

Victoria Hernandez,*USA Today*: Seahawks 20, Cardinals 16

"The Cardinals are on the road playing their second straight divisional game with no Kyler Murray return in sight. Yes, Geno Smith played sloppy in last week's loss with an injured ankle. But the Seahawks are back home and have plenty of other playmakers on both sides of the ball to capture the win."

Safid Deen,*USA Today*: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 17

"Seattle lost a tough one in Cincinnati last week. But the 1-5 Arizona Cardinals are the perfect matchup to get the Seahawks back in the win column. The Seahawks offense should roll in this one."

Tyler Dragon,*USA Today*: Seahawks 21, Cardinals 15

"Arizona's lack of talent is starting to show. The Cardinals have lost three in a row. Things won't get any easier for the Cardinals as they travel to Seattle to face a Seahawks team looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss. The Seahawks went 1-5 in the red zone last week. They'll have better luck reaching the end zone at home."

Bill Bender,*Sporting News:Seahawks 31, Cardinals 21*

"The Cardinals have lost their last three games by an average of 16.7 points per game, and they committed five turnovers the last two weeks. Joshua Dobbs will be pressed to make plays against a Seattle defense that ranks in the top five in rushing defense. The Seahawks won both meetings by 10 points last season."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 17

"The Seahawks are coming off a tough road loss to the Bengals, while the Cardinals are playing consecutive road games after losing to the Rams last week. The Cardinals offense struggled in that game, which is a concern. The Seattle offense blew a bunch of scoring chances. They won't here. Seahawks take it."

Dan Parr, Seahawks 24, Cardinals 14

"Since stunning the Cowboys in Week 3, the Cardinals are 0-3 and have been outscored 95-45. Yikes. Seattle is not playing its best ball right now, but if there ever were a time to get right, it's at home against Arizona. Another shaky game from Geno Smith could make things interesting, but I don't think Smith and the Seahawks are as bad as they looked last week in Cincinnati. It might be best to take the pressure off Geno and pound the rock against a defense that allowed Kyren Williams to rush for 158 yards last week."

Bob Condotta, Seattle Times: Seahawks 27, Cardinals 16

"While disappointing in its overall result, the Bengals loss also left the Seahawks optimistic about the big picture. Seattle needs to not slip up now, though, as a home favorite against a 1-5 team. But if the defense plays as it has the last two weeks that shouldn't be much of an issue."

Adam Jude, Seattle Times: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 10

"Against Arizona's beat-up offense, this is a prime opportunity for Seattle's defense to take another leap forward and show it can be among the elite defenses in the NFL."

Larry Stone, Seattle Times: Seahawks 35, Cardinals 14

"The Seahawks will take out their frustrations from last week's loss in Cincinnati on the 1-5 Cardinals, who have dropped three in a row since their head-scratching upset of the Dallas Cowboys."

Matt Calkins, Seattle Times: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 17

"Home-field advantage against a team that's won just one game should translate into an easy(ish) win for Seattle. Look for the Seahawks' offense to resuscitate itself after a tough go in last week's loss vs. the Bengals."

Mike Florio,*NBC Sports:Seahawks 27, Cardinals 17*

"Seattle can't afford to lose at home to another NFC West rival."
