Running back David Johnson had 11 carries for 23 yards along with 6 catches for 67 yards. He is out until at least week 10 with  a broken wrist suffered in week one. In order to improve the dreadful running game, the Cardinals traded for Adrian Peterson from the New Orleans Saints. Peterson was expendable in a crowded Saints’ backfield. He has 74 carries for 314 yards and 2 touchdowns, plus 3 catches for 20 yards. Andre Ellington has 13 carries for 49 yards, and has 30 catches for 271 yards.  Kerwynn Williams has 24 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown, plus 4 catches for 39 yards.

Seattle is 7-0 ATS in Thursday games, 6-1 in week 10, 8-2 after a straight up loss, 24-8-2 after passing for more than 250 yards, 5-2 in November, 3-7-1 after scoring less than 15 points, 2-6 in road games, 1-4 after gaining more than 350 yards, 1-5 after allowing less than 90 rushing yards and on grass, and 1-7 after allowing less than 250 yards. The road team is 5-0 ATS in this series recently. The Seahawks have covered the last four games in Arizona against the Cardinals.

Arizona is 15-6 ATS after allowing more than 250 passing yards, 2-5 in Thursday games, against teams with winning road records, and against NFC teams, 5-13 at home, 2-6 after a cover and overall, 3-9-1 after rushing for 150 yards or more, 4-14 against teams with winning records, 1-5 in November, 1-6 after a straight up win, 1-10 after allowing less than 90 rushing yards, and 0-7 after allowing less than 15 points. The underdog has covered the last four games in this  series. The over is 10-3 in Arizona in this series recently.

Adrian Peterson has really revived the Arizona running game. Without Palmer they are more of a running team. They have alternated wins and losses all season. Seattle has no running game besides Wilson, and are banged up on defense. I still think Seattle is a better team and wins a close game on the road.
