Seahawks vs. Cardinals live score, updates, highlights from ‘Sunday Night Football’ game

By | October 25, 2020

Week 7’s “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Seahawks and the Cardinals feels like a matchup of present vs. future.

Russell Wilson represents the present as the premier undersized, fleet-footed QB in the NFL. Wilson is an early MVP favorite after throwing for 1,502 yards and a league-best 19 TDs in Seattle’s first five games. He, with the help of receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, has the Seahawks (5-0) back to playing like a Super Bowl contender.

Kyler Murray represents the future. Wilson may be the prototype that helped pave the way for Murray to be selected No. 1 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, but Murray’s talents as a scrambler and a thrower might be even better than Wilson. The 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year has been even more impressive in 2020 with 1,487 yards passing and 10 touchdowns through the air, along with 370 yards rushing and six TDs on the ground. It looks like he’s helped the Cardinals (4-2) turn the corner in year two, and they could be on the rise for years to come.
