The Arizona Cardinals will play their division rival Seattle Seahawks on the field for the second time in four weeks. James Conner, a two-time Pro Bowl running back, will be involved this time.
Conner has been sidelined with a rib injury since Week 5, but according to Adam Schefter, the former third-round pick is likely to play.
The Cardinals’ offense has been ineffective even with Conner in the starting lineup. This season, the 27-year-old hasn’t amassed more than 55 rushing yards in a game, and his yards per carry have been averaging about 3.7. Nevertheless, he might excel against a Seahawks defense that is seventh in terms of rushing yards allowed per game.
Eno Benjamin With Conner back in the lineup, who has started the last three games, will have a smaller role. In two of his three starts, Benjamin’s average yardage per carry was less than 2.5.
After FanDuel Sportsbook launched the Cardinals as -4 chalk, bettors discounted their chances, cutting them to -1.5 favorites.
