After falling to the New York Jets in a disappointing 7-6 loss, the Arizona Cardinals appear to have reached a new low.

The team is now 4-8 and still can't find any consistency at the quarterback position, which is severely limiting the offense.

The same cannot be said for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.

A rookie, Wilson is arguably the hottest quarterback in the league, and his team is eyeing a playoff berth.

The two met in Week 1 and the Cardinals won 20-16, but a lot has changed for both teams since that time.
