The Seahawks vs Cardinals live stream is scheduled to begin at 8:20 p.m. ET/ 5:20 p.m. PT today (Sunday, October 25) on NBC. 

It's game time and the Seahawks vs Cardinals live stream is not exactly a perfectly even matchup. Seattle enters as an undefeated powerhouse, while Arizona's record is marred by two painful stumbles this year. Still, we get a Sunday Night Football with two fantastic offensive teams that promises to be a close contest. The oddsmakers  favor the Seahawks, but it's just by 3.5 points. 

That's tight enough for a slip-up by the Seahawks or a streak of luck by the Cardinals to turn the tide. Fans can hope for an entertaining display of talent from both teams, especially in their respective passing games.

Each team is well positioned coming into this game. The Seahawks are rested after a bye week. The Cardinals will be relieved to play at home after three weeks on the road. Their travels didn't start well, with a crushing defeat by the Carolina Panthers. But they concluded with solid triumphs over the Jets and the Cowboys -- albeit far from the best teams in the league, but still morale boosters. The Seahawks last game against a feisty Minnesota Vikings shows that Seattle is far from unstoppable. It was only in the last 15 seconds that the Seahawks scored a decisive touchdown to snatch a one-point victory from the jaws of defeat.

That TD came courtesy of one of the most dynamic duos in today's NFL: QB Russel Wilson and wide receiver DK Metcalf. Each is playing at the very top of their game. With 19 passing touchdowns and a 129.8 passer rating, Wilson leads the NFL and is a top contender for MVP this year. Meanwhile, Metcalf is playing at an All-Pro level this year. And he's not Russel's only weapon. Veteran WR Tyler Lockett is averaging a career-high 68.4 receiving yards per game.

Against most other teams, the Cardinals' offense would look awfully intimidating in its own right. Quarterback Kyler Murray has improved over last year and now boasts a 97.1 passer rating. He's moved the ball nearly 1500 yards for 10 touchdowns this season. Like Wilson and Metcalf, Murray has a dependable target in all-pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins. And Arizona will not be facing the toughest defense in Seattle on Sunday night.

The Cardinals' defense, in contrast, has become more coherent of late. It's allowing about 19 points per game, vs a whopping 27 that the Seahawks are giving up. Seattle has always been able to make up for that with high scoring, though. It averages 33.8 points per game, vs Arizona's 27.7.

Injuries could play a pivotal role in the balance of defensive power. The Cardinals have lost top pass rusher Chandler Jones due to torn biceps, taking pressure off Wilson. Meanwhile the Seahawks had been hopeful to regain safety Jamal Adams to reinforce its feeble defensive game, but after missing Thursday practice, it looks like he may still not be fully recovered from a groin injury. 

While both teams are a joy to watch, Sunday night could be especially interesting to see what the Cardinals can pull off. Aside from its Minnesota mishaps, the Seahawks have been a consistently dominant team. Arizona has had a more mixed record, and it's recent victories have come against easy targets. Seattle will push the Cardinals to show how well they can play against a top-tier team.
