The NFC West has been a hard-fought battle all year, and tonight figures to be one to watch.

The Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks both sit at 6-3 in a three-way tie atop the division, although it was Arizona emerging victorious in their previous matchup. The Cardinals handed Seattle its first loss of the season in an overtime thriller thanks to late game heroics from Kyler Murray, who has rebounded well since a poor showing against the Lions in Week 3. After a miraculous touchdown to clinch victory over the Bills last week, the Cardinals are riding high.

Seattle, meanwhile, has struggled to rebound after starting the season 5-0. Losses to Buffalo, Arizona, and fellow 6-3 Rams team have hurt, and their defense is a prime cause of their regression. Gone are the days of the Legion of Boom, as is their once dominant run game. Chris Carson is banged up, and neither Carlos Hyde, Alex Collins, or DeeJay Dallas have been able to fill the void. D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett remain among the best receiving duos in the league, and Russell Wilson is still playing at an MVP level, but the players around them need to step up.
