Behind Enemy Lines Week 16: Seattle Seahawks

Dec 16, 2013, 11:03 PM | Updated: Dec 22, 2013, 7:35 pm

It’s hard to find any story from the Seattle media concerning the Seahawks that doesn’t include the word ‘Super’ or some mention of the Super Bowl.

That’s because the ‘Hawks shut out the New York Giants 23-0 in Week 15 at MetLife Stadium — the site of Super Bowl XLVIII. So with the Seahawks having the league’s best record at 12-2, there’s a lot of talk about this being the first of two trips to New Jersey for Pete Carroll’s team.

The Arizona Cardinals can throw a wrench in all the celebrating while strengthening their own playoff resume. Arizona (9-5) needs a win Sunday at CenturyLink Field to keep their postseason dreams alive.

The last time these two teams met in Seattle, the Seahawks embarrassed the Cardinals 58-0 — the worst loss in franchise history.

But only 22 of the 45 Cardinals who suited up last December in Seattle are still with the team, so this game should have a different feel than that 58-point blowout did.

The two teams met earlier this year, with the Seahawks prevailing 34-22 on a Thursday night game in Week 7.

All week, in preparation for the game, we’ll update you with everything going on in Seattle as the Seahawks get ready to host the Cardinals.
