According to most NFL predictors including USA Today, last year’s Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, will beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, December 21. Seven out of the seven on the panel agree. They are: Jarrett Bell, Jim Corbett, Nate Davis, Lindsay H. Jones, Gary Mihoces, Tom Pelissero, and Lorenzo Reyes. Cardinals fans can find some comfort in knowing that five of those men are giving Arizona some respect, picking the Cards to cover the 8.5-point spread.
The USA Today panel also unanimously have the Philadelphia Eagles beating the Washington Redskins; the Detroit Lions beating the Chicago Bears; the Baltimore Ravens beating the Houston Texans; the New England Patriots beating the New York Jets; and Green Bay Packers at Buccaneers. All of these predicted winners are playing away.
