12. Arizona Cardinals (-3)
It feels like weeks ago, but it was just on Thursday that the Cardinals came out and sorta laid an egg against the Seahawks. That sounds harsh, I’m not saying that they were bad, but I am saying that both the Cards and the Seahawks were in a prime position to light it up and they were just sort of average.
Specifically, Kyler Murray only had a few plays that made me gasp which is what this team is built on. I still think this is the start of the tier of teams that feel like locks to make it into the playoffs somehow.
11. Seattle Seahawks (-1)
Like I said above, this was a game on Thursday where everyone was pumped to see fireworks and the feeling I came away with from both teams wasn’t, “Wow, these defenses are playing great.” it was “Man, I really expected something special.”
But, I’m repeating myself here because I still think both of these teams are very good and present difficult challenges for defenses that will set them up for big runs in the playoffs.
