Sunday NFL Football Analysis: The Seattle Seahawks reached the Super Bowl the last time they had home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs and they can secure home field again if they can beat Arizona on Sunday.  Meanwhile, the Cardinals will be all but eliminated from postseason contention with a loss.  With two home games left, Seattle could be playing at Century Link Field until the Super Bowl where they have won 14 regular season home games in a row.  Seattle dominated the New York Giants in New York 23-0 last weekend.  The Seahawks gave up a season low 181 total yards of offense and intercepted Eli Manning five times.  Richard Sherman, whose six interceptions are tied for the NFL lead, had four interceptions and two fumble recoveries in his last four games against Arizona.  The Seahawks sacked Carson Palmer seven times and intercepted him twice in a 34-22 week seven win at Arizona.  The Cardinals have won six of seven games since with a 106 passer rating, among the league’s best in that stretch.  They have already clinched their first winning season since 2009 and wins in their last two games would die the franchise record of 11 wins.  Carson Palmer is expected to play despite a high ankle sprain but his primary target’s status is more in jeopardy.  Larry Fitzgerald’s streak of 104 straight NFL games played could be in trouble after suffering a concussion late in the Cardinals’ 37-34 in overtime against Tennessee last weekend.  He practiced fully on Thursday and if he can pass concussion protocol he should be ready to play.  Seattle’s shut down corners have limited Fitzgerald to 82 yards on seven catches and no touchdowns in his last three games against them.  Arizona has been playing deceivingly good football lately, they’re largely going unnoticed in the NFC wild card picture and they’re probably getting too many points for a road divisional battle with so much on the line.  Seattle has won five of the last seven in this series, but they’re laying a massive number here and they already have the division wrapped up.  Arizona is playing for their season and should leave it all on the field on Sunday, covering the double digit spread.

Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Game Prediction: 27-20 Seattle Seahawks
What to expect in this week 16 NFL Football match up: The Arizona defense is one of the best in the league against the run, they will shut Marshawn Lynch down and force Seattle to throw the football where they are much less comfortable.  The Arizona offense will struggle largely, but score on enough big plays and long field goals to cover this big spread.  The Seattle offense isn’t going to blow anyone out, especially a division rival with their season on the line.
