Bill Bender writes: “The Cardinals won a 37-34 thriller in the first meeting and are coming off an emotional Hail Mary victory against the Bills. Russell Wilson needs to clean up the turnovers after throwing for seven interceptions the last four weeks – a stretch that includes three losses. Seattle gets the rematch, but it’s close.”

Jarrett Bailey writes: “The Cardinals are coming off one of the plays of the year gave them a walk-off touchdown in a 32-30 win against Buffalo. Now winners in four of their last five, Arizona sits atop the NFC West for the time being. The Seahawks have lost their last two games and three of their last four after a 5-0 start to the season. Russell Wilson has come down to Earth after not throwing a touchdown for the first time this season and adding two interceptions against the Rams. The Seahawks’ defense has been atrocious, having allowed their opponents to score just under 33 points on average over their last four games. These Thursday night games favor the underdog, as they have covered in every game but two, where the Jets and Titans both failed to cover. With that in mind, expect Arizona to cover, but also expect Seattle to get back on track in the division race.”

Vincent Frank writes: “The balance of power in the NFC West will be on the line in this midweek matchup. Seattle and Arizona are in a three-way tie in the division with the Los Angeles Rams. They have also gone about it in different ways. For the Cardinals, that included a shocking late-game win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10. Seattle is a completely different story. The combination of Russell Wilson’s sudden turnover proneness and a pathetic defense have the Seahawks in a funk. They fell to the Rams, 23-16, on Sunday. For his part, Wilson has turned the ball over nine times in his past four games. Add in a lackluster offensive line, and it’s no surprise Seattle has lost three of four. Expect that trend to continue Week 11.”

Oliver Hodkingson writes: “As the Seattle Seahawks struggled to defeat in Los Angeles against the Rams, Kyler Murray was performing miracles in Buffalo to give the Arizona Cardinals an improbable last-second win over the Buffalo Bills. Week 11’s Thursday Night Football pits the NFC West-leading Cardinals against the Seahawks in a rematch of Sunday Night Football from Week 7. Will the Cardinals come back to earth with a bang, or will they repeat their Week 7 win? Russell Wilson threw three interceptions in that game, and although I don’t see the same happening again, the Seahawks’ terrible defense is putting Wilson in a position where he’s having to do too much to keep his team in games all by himself. DeAndre Hopkins, one half of the miracle in Buffalo, is my fantasy WR1 this week for a reason, and I expect him to combine again with Murray as the Cardinals take the win.”
Sports Interaction: Go with the Seahawks
Payton Matthews writes: “Huge game in the NFC West, and these teams played arguably the game of the season so far back in Week 7. They combined for nearly 1,110 yards offence and Arizona rallied from down 10 points late in regulation to eventually win 37-34 in overtime. Kyler Murray vs. Russell Wilson might be the NFC’s best QB rivalry for the next five years. Wilson has been struggling with turnovers of late, though, as Seattle has dropped three of four.”
WSN: Take the Cardinals
Mike Lukas writes: “In this NFC West battle, it is two 6-3 teams with different momentum coming in to try and take over the division, the Cardinals have won four of their last five matchups, being led offensively (ranked first overall) by quarterback Kyler Murray who is getting his game plans from the brilliant HC slash OC Kliff Kingsbury. The Seahawks have dropped three of their last four games and are also now 6-3, but because their MVP caliber quarterback Russell Wilson seems to be struggling lately (he’s thrown 2 picks in each of his last two games), Seattle seems more desperate for a Week 11 win here. Take the Cardinals – the number one offense facing the 32nd ranked defense is a good bet.”
