Cardinals vs. Seahawks 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

The Cardinals travel to Seattle hoping to break an eight-game losing streak.


The Arizona Cardinals (4-8) visit the Seattle Seahawks (7-5) on Saturday looking to break an eight-game losing streak. The Cardinals have lost eight in a row after a 4-0 start, last winning in Week 4 against Miami.

The Cardinals have featured one of the most anemic offenses in the league, primarily due to poor quarterback play. Kevin Kolb hasn't been healthy, and John Skelton has not been able to play well enough to hold onto the job. Rookie Ryan Lindley has started the past three games, twice failing to throw for more than 100 yards. Sunday was a new low for Arizona, as the Cardinals lost to the dysfunctional Jets, 7-6, with Lindley throwing for only 71 yards.

Meanwhile, Seattle made a road trip to Chicago, beating the Bears in overtime, 23-17. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 293 and two touchdowns, including the game-winner to Sidney Rice in overtime. Seattle has one of the top defenses in the league this season, but that depth could be tested as cornerbacks Brandon Browner (suspension) and Marcus Trufant (hamstring) will not play on Sunday.

The two teams met to open the season, a 20-16 Cardinals win in Arizona. In that game, Seattle was unable to score on a second-and-goal from the 4-yard line on their final possession.

Game Time/Date: Sunday, Dec. 9, 2:25 p.m. MT

Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA
