SEAHAWKS GAMEDAY

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (5-1) AT ARIZONA CARDINALS (3-3)

5:25 p.m., University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz.

TV: NFL Network, JoeTV (cable Ch. 10). Radio: 710-AM, 97.3-FM.

The series: Tied at 14. The last time the teams met, the Seahawks won, 58-0, at CenturyLink Field on Dec. 9, 2012.

What to watch: If the Seahawks can run on the stout Arizona run defense. In large part because of Russell Wilson’s scrambling success the past three weeks, the Seahawks are second in the league in rushing. The Cardinals’ rush defense is fifth in the league. Arizona has allowed just one rusher to run for more than 100 yards this season, and that was San Francisco’s Frank Gore, who ran for 101 yards last week in the 49ers’ win.

The pick: Seahawks, 24-10.
