Week 16 NFL preview: Cardinals vs. Seahawks

The Cardinals need a road win at CenturyLink -- something no team has done in two years -- to stay alive in the playoff race, while the Seahawks can clinch the top seed in the NFC with a win. Can Carson Palmer and the banged-up Cardinals avenge last year's 58-0 loss? Matt Ufford and the crew preview the game and make their picks.

Despite their 9-5 record, the Arizona Cardinals are currently on the outside looking in at the playoffs as they travel to Seattle to face the NFC-leading Seahawks. The Cards need to catch either the 49ers, Panthers or Saints -- all of whom are 10-4 -- to grab one of the two wild card spots. That will be no easy task against the 12-2 Seahawks, who can clinch the conference's No. 1 seed with a win.
