Seattle will look to get back on track on a quick turnaround in Week 10 as they head to Arizona for a matchup with a Cardinals team that's been below average to put it nicely.

Seattle opened at 6.5-point favorites before dropping a half-point over Tuesday and Wednesday.

What to Watch For

Arizona's seen some success handing RB Adrian Peterson the ball. They lost 20-10 to San Francisco, but Peterson did have 159 yards on 37 rushing attempts.

Peterson is projected to finish with 79 yards on 14 carries; he averages 0.4 TDs per sim.

In the loss against Washington last week, Seattle QB Russell Wilson finished with 297 yards, 2 TDs and 77 rushing yards, but also threw two INTs. The Seahawks have their eye on the NFC West title and will look to make a statement Thursday night.

Wilson is projected to finish with 270 passing yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, to go along with 17 rushing yards on 4-to-5 carries.

Here's a not-so-fun fact for Arizona fans -- the Cardinals are 0-4 SU and ATS against teams at-or-above .500.
