What to watch for in the Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks matchup:

Having two MVP candidates in the same game makes for a highly entertaining Thursday Night Football matchup. On one hand, you’ve got the leader of the most intriguing up-and-coming team in football with Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals. They’re up against an experienced threat in Russell Wilson, whose Super Bowl prowess and innate talent make him a surefire candidate for the 2020 NFL Most Valuable Player award. Tied up at 6-3 along with the Los Angeles Rams, a victory here will be decisive for whichever team comes out victorious.

Seattle’s faulty defense is getting a boost with Jamal Adams back in the lineup after missing over a month due to injury. A defensive game-breaker with incredible pass-rushing skill in addition to all-world coverage, Adams is almost always the best safety in the games he plays. However, Cardinals safety Budda Baker is making a name for himself after going 36th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Baker detonated in the previous matchup with Seattle, finishing with 11 solo tackles, a tackle for loss, one pass deflection and an interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown. If he can repeat that performance, Arizona’s chances of winning will expand exponentially and the playoff picture may become murky for a Seahawks team that’s 1-2 in the division.

The Seahawks hold onto the fact that they remain perfect at home with a 4-0 record when playing host this year. If they can defend their home field, the Seahawks will regain sole possession of the No. 1 seed in the most competitive division in pro football this year.
