At long last, the Seattle Seahawks (3-2) are finally home again.
Why yes, the 17-game schedule means Seattle plays one more road game than home game in the regular season, but Seattle still ended up going a full mount between appearances at Lumen Field. The Seahawks won against the New York Giants in Week 4, had a bye week, then last week lost a heartbreaker to the Cincinnati Bengals in Ohio. Now they find themselves at home for the next two weeks, starting with the Arizona Cardinals (1-5).
While the Cardinals are well on their way to being one of the league’s worst teams in terms of win-loss record, they have not played like a typical 1-5 team. Rookie head coach Jonathan Gannon guided the Cardinals to an upset win over the Dallas Cowboys, and they’ve been at least reasonably competitive in their other losses. With that said, Arizona has yet to win on the road this season and have only scored 41 points in three trips outside of Glendale. Safety Budda Baker is back for the Cardinals, but Kyler Murray is not, so Joshua Dobbs is the quarterback again.
The Seahawks are kicking themselves after wasting so many chances on offense against the Bengals, squandering what was a sterling defensive performance from the 2nd quarter onward. Geno Smith and DK Metcalf (who’s questionable with an injury) in particular have taken the brunt of the criticism, while the banged up offensive line has also shown cracks in the armor. And yet, they’re still 3-2 in a weak conference, and the improved defense has to be encouraging for Seattle’s chances of getting back on track.
