The notion of whether or not the Seattle Seahawks have anything to play for this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals is an interesting debate. Not that Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson, or Earl Thomas are ever the types to accept a loss -- and they won't -- but will it be in their best interest to play anyone that's not 100-percent or have their best players out there for the entirety of the game? That's not an option that the Cardinals will have, as they are competing for the number one seed with the Carolina Panthers simultaneously taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
That being said, this is still a matchup of (probably) the two best teams (and quarterbacks) in the NFC, and potentially a preview of the NFC Championship. That's not something to take lightly.
To help Danny and Kenneth preview the game, as well as taking a look at the team as a whole, the NFC playoffs, and Chip Kelly's early departure from Philly, is ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. Sheil is in his first season of covering the Seahawks and he's done a phenomenal job since taking over the highly-coveted position. Definitely follow him on Twitter and stay active on his work over at ESPN.
