It’s go time. Today is an important one for the trajectory of our Seattle Seahawks 2023 NFL season. We are at home, facing up against an opponent that on paper, should defeat handily. Inefficiency and maybe some attitude problems (?) have plagued the edges of a team heading in the right direction. Each game will reveal a bit more about this group’s tenacity, focus, and determination to succeed. Should be a good one!! What are y’all eating today??

DK Metcalf looking for breakout game vs Cardinals - Seahawks Wire
The Seattle Seahawks have a bonafide star at wide receiver with DK Metcalf, but there is one team who has consistently had his number: the Arizona Cardinals. For whatever reason, Metcalf has routinely struggled to make a considerable impact in games against the Cardinals. In eight career games playing Arizona, Metcalf has hauled in only 22 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. Arguably, his best performance was the second game against the Cardinals last year when he caught five-of-six passes thrown his way for 37 yards and a touchdown.
