This 7 days the Seattle Seahawks host Arizona for Recreation 6 of the 2022 season. Both of those groups are in a 3-way tie for 2nd place in the NFC West.
Just before the year begun, several people imagined these two teams would have the identical file and tied for 2nd spot in the division. However, this is the precise predicament the Seattle Seahawks come across them selves in for Activity 6. This week’s opponent is not as risky as lots of might have believed coming into the period.
The Seattle Seahawks have a great possibility to gain this sport and get back to .500. Hopefully, this week, Seattle can rating much more points and not rely on its defense as substantially to make stops.
This recreation features the best opposing quarterback the Seahawks have faced all season, Kyler Murray. On top of that, these are the two worst defenses in the NFC West. So get the popcorn completely ready for some offensive fireworks.
So what else can 12s count on from this activity?
The Seahawks’ protection may glance great
Arizona’s offense ranks 17th in speeding yards and 16th in passing yards. They rank 18th in the NFL, averaging 21 points per recreation. And the Playing cards rank 25th, changing 36.1% on third down conversions.
All this is to say that if the Seattle Seahawks protection appears enhanced this 7 days, it may well have a little additional to do with the opponent not currently being that great.
Two regions that the Seattle Seahawks’ defense can exhibit improvement are on fourth down and in the crimson zone. Above the earlier few seasons, they’ve operated additional as a bend, don’t break type. Arizona ranks eighth in fourth down conversions at 64.7% and 19th in purple zone excursions that close in a landing at 56.3%.
So, if the Seattle Seahawks can get off the industry on third down and not permit Arizona even to consider likely for it on fourth, they’ll have a much better opportunity of successful. The very same holds genuine for forcing Arizona into discipline purpose tries instead of scoring touchdowns.

A new examination this 7 days
This Seattle Seahawks offense ranks in the Best 10 of the NFL. Who would have considered that when RW3 went to Denver? This week the offensive line will have their communication tested.
Arizona blitzes on 41.7% of their plays, which ranks 2nd in the NFL. Be expecting to see Arizona employ some unique-seeking blitzes to confuse the rookie tackles. Alongside with showcasing some twists and stunts.
Even although Arizona blitzes at these types of a high rate, they aren’t very prosperous.
- 9th in hurries at 10.2%
- 13th in QB knockdowns at 10.3%
- 16th in pressures at 23%
- 32nd in sacks with 6
Permit Geno cook
Geno Smith should really be equipped to carve up the Cardinals’ secondary. Inspite of having Budda Baker and Byron Murphy in the defensive backfield, Arizona allows a 69.1% completion amount while providing up an regular of 248.2 passing yards. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback ought to have no dilemma continuing with his vocation season.
And he will have to, as Kenneth Walker III and DeeJay Dallas might be in shop for a rough day. Arizona has the league’s fifth toughest run defense, allowing for 487 rushing yards to day, with an ordinary of 4.3 yards for every carry and 97.4 yards for each recreation.
Irrespective of all the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive results, there are even now disbelievers. They are 2.5-level underdogs, and the in excess of/beneath is 50.5 factors.
This is one more coin-flip recreation, and I’m traveling with Smith and the Seattle Seahawks. This unanticipated time rolls along with another gain, and Seattle stays close to the prime of the NFC West.
