The Arizona Cardinals welcome their undefeated NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks to State Farm Stadium for a Week 7 matchup that could end up being the most entertaining show of Sunday's NFL schedule.
The Cardinals are coming off a 38-10 blowout victory over the Dallas Cowboys on "Monday Night Football," which improved their record to 4-2. The undefeated Seahawks (5-0) were on a bye last week.

Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks Prediction
The Arizona Cardinals have won their last two games with 20-plus point margins, albeit against the 0-5 New York Jets and the Dak Prescott-less Cowboys.
This week they face MVP front-runner Russell Wilson and 'New Era Megatron' DK Metcalf, who have been on a roll -- knocking off opponents with absolute ease to be one of only three undefeated teams still left in the league.
While both Wilson and Murray are similar in stature and style of play, I expect the veteran play-caller to take care of the young prodigy and seal a win for the Seahawks.
