ONCE AGAIN

- - - - - With a recent history of strong showings in Seattle, the Cardinals built on the previous week's performance against the Browns with a convincing win at the playoff-bound Seahawks. Defensively, Arizona crushed Seattle's efforts to move the ball downfield, led by Chandler Jones' dominating performance to put him within reach of the single-season sack record. A downfield forced fumble further powered the Cardinals' cause on their way to the 27-13 victory and to narrow Seattle's all-time series lead to just one game. The outcome may end up costing the Seahawks the overall one-seed, depending on the results of Week 17's games.
- - - - - Kyler Murray's hamstring injury may have kept him out of much of the second half, though Brett Hundley filled in admirably (after a terrible first series hampered by predictable play-calling from the bench). Particularly notable was his sideline cutback to set up the game-clinching touchdown one play later. Despite another impressive performance by Kenyan Drake, I do worry about his motivation going forward. With the disclaimer that I have never met him, his touchdown celebrations lead me to believe that he is more concerned with getting paid than with building a winner in Arizona. Some organization will understandably compensate him handsomely; what remains to be seen is if they will get in return a similar drive as what he has demonstrated the second half of this season.

NEXT WEEK, @ LOS ANGELES RAMS: In the final game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, it is fitting that one of the three teams still in existence when the stadium first opened its doors in 1923 will be there to visit. While neither team will be punching its ticket to the post-season this year, a Cardinals' victory may suggest that these two teams are indeed headed in opposite directions, sliding past each other as we head into 2020. My prediction, Cards win, 20-17.

"The Cardinals Are Charging" was written for both the St. Louis Baseball and Football Cardinals on June 29, 1960. Although the baseball team stopped using the march several years later, the fight song can still be heard at all home football games for the now Arizona Cardinals. The music and words were composed by songwriters Irving Bibo (1889-1962) and Larry Kent. Originally, the lyrics had "all St. Louis" in place of "Arizona" (Line 7), and "St. Louis" instead of "Arizona" (Line 8). Download from the following versions: Real Audio, and MIDI.
