Cardinals face a challenge in Seattle

Carson Palmer remains sidelined as the Cardinals travel to face the Rams.

 

The Arizona Cardinals play their first game on the road, this Sunday, since Carson Palmer was hurt playing the St. Louis Rams.

Drew Stanton did enough to get the better of the Detroit Lions last week in a 14-6 victory and Palmer's backup will continue to get the opportunity with the former first overall pick in the 2003 draft out for the rest of the season.

Stanton was 21-of-32 for 306 yards and two first quarter touchdown passes to Michael Floyd. Originally drafted by the Lions in 2007, Stanton is well thought of in Arizona and the Cardinals appear confident that their backup can lead them to an NFC West Division championship and deep into the post season.

The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks welcome the Cardinals to the CenturyLink Field in what is a make or break matchup for the hosts.

Win and the Seahawks might still catch Arizona in the Division. However lose and it is effectively all over for Seattle who would be five games back with five to play. The NFC Wild Card remains a possibility, but the Seahawks trail both the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers by a game in the battle for the two spots.

Tied with Seattle at 6-4 in the Division are the San Francisco 49ers who got the better of the New York Giants at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ last week. The Washington Redskins are the visitors to the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara this weekend before the Seahawks are in town on Thanksgiving Day.

The Cardinals are 12.00 to win the Super Bowl, while the Seahawks can be backed at 15.00.
