10. Seattle Seahawks (-2)
The Seahawks are 1-3 in their last 4 games and they lost two of those games by at least a full touchdown. Russell Wilson isn’t playing at his normal elite level and that is starting to really hurt the team, who can’t return the favor of him carrying them for most of the season.
I don’t know how worried we should be about the Seahawks long term, but I think this is giving us a great view into just how important Russell Wilson is and how important it is for him to basically play perfectly. Otherwise, this team is .500 at best.
9. Arizona Cardinals (+3)
The Cardinals are basically the 2019 Baltimore Ravens, but without all the juice on defense.
Kyler Murray is the world’s smallest lightning bolt and it is incredible to watch his instant burst with the ball in his hands. With arm strength to spare and top-end creativity, it is hard to imagine a quarterback more difficult to defend in the open field.
It is ironic that Seattle and Arizona are both on the same slide because they really aren’t that different at all and they are just two sides of the same coin with one side showing the best-case scenario and the other side showing what could go wrong.
