Arizona Cardinals QB:
The veteran quarterback is hitting on 64% of his throws this year for 2386 yards with 20 touchdowns and six picks. Palmer had a huge game at Cleveland completing 60% of his throws for 374 yards with four touchdowns and one pick. He has had six games with multiple touchdown throws including four games with three touchdowns or greater.
Arizona Cardinals RB:
Johnson had been a flop at Tennessee following his big contract. He flopped at the New York Jets.

He is running for 4.8 yards per carry and has been dominating the carries in the Arizona backfield.
Arizona Cardinals WR:

Seattle Seahawks QB:
Wilson has completed 68.8% of his throws this year for 1878 yards with nine touchdowns and six picks. His accuracy is the best in his career. He is a threat with his legs as Wilson has run for 303 yards on the season for 5.2 yards per carry.
Seattle Seahawks RB:
Marshawn Lynch is bothered by an abdominal injury and it is questionable whether he can play on Sunday night. Rawls has been the more productive back with 69 carries for 376 yards and a touchdown. He is rushing for a team high 5.4 yards per carry average.

The five year wide out has caught 31 balls on the year for 345 yards with two touchdowns. He has a career low 11.1 yards per catch average.
