Seahawks set to face Cardinals in NFC West clash

Published on October 14, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Jaguars Seahawks FootballSeattle’s pass rush: In three home games, the Seahawks have 10 sacks (they have only four in two road games) and are allowing just eight points a game. They will need to keep up their aggressive defensive play at home against a Cardinals offense that has the ability to put up big numbers.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh’s increasing comfort level: Since starting slowly with his new team, Houshmandzadeh has really taken off the past two weeks. He has 13 catches for 180 yards and two touchdowns over that span and appears to be getting a better grasp of the Seahawks’ offensive system. He could be a difference-maker this Sunday against the Cardinals, who rank last in pass defense.

Last meeting:

Kurt Warner passed for 263 yards as the Cardinals completed a season sweep of Seattle with a 34-21 victory in Week 17 last season.

Streaks:

The Cardinals have won four of the last five meetings to take a narrow 11-9 overall series edge.

Last week:

Arizona used a goal-line stand to hold off visiting Houston, 28-21. … Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck had four touchdown passes as the Seahawks leveled the Jaguars, 41-0.

Keep your eye on …

Anquan Boldin’s presence: In his last trip to Seattle, Boldin had 13 catches for 186 yards. If he is able to post similar stats this time, it could be tough for the Seahawks to overcome.

Did you know?

Last week, Cardinals QB Kurt Warner joined Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton as the only players in NFL history with 13,000-plus yards passing for two teams. … Arizona’s Adrian Wilson is one of two active safeties with 18 or more interceptions and 18 or more sacks. … Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck has won seven of 11 starts against the Cardinals. … Seattle RB Edgerrin James is the NFL’s active rushing leader with 12,226 yards.
