    Arizona wraps up the 2018 season this week with a road trip against division rival Sea le. It will be the second consecu ve season - and third me in four years - that the Cardinals and Seahawks have met in the season fi nale. Da ng back to 2013, Sea le has established one of the league’s best home- fi eld advantages, with only New England (.872) winning a higher percentage of home games than the Seahawks (.745). During that me, the Seahawks have lost at home just 12 mes. A third of those losses have come to the Cardinals, who are 4-1 at CenturyLink Field dur- ing that span. Arizona enters this week's game having won three in row in the series. The series between these two teams features a rare streak, as the road team has not suff ered a loss since 2014, a span that covers eight games. In that me, the visi ng team has a 7-0-1 record. With a win on Sunday, the Cardinals would have their longest road win streak in series history and hand Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll the fi rst four-game home losing streak against a single opponent during his nine-year (2010-2018) tenure. A victory would also lt the all- me series record - currently kno ed at 19-19-1 - in the Cardinals favor and improve their road record against the Seahawks to 11-10. Sunday's game will wrap up the 15th season of WR Larry Fitzgerald's career. He will be taking the fi eld for the 234th me as a member of the Cardinals, tying K Jim Bakken's franchise record for career games played. Arizona's future Hall of Fame wideout pulled off a new trick last Sunday against the Rams when he threw the fi rst TD pass of his career on a perfect 32-yard strike to RB David Johnson. This week, Fitzgerald will be making his 14th appearance at Century- Link Field, where he has totaled 74 recep ons for 823 yards and fi ve TDs. Fitzgerald's TD pass to Johnson was the Cardinals lone TD against the Rams last week, as Arizona dropped its third straight. For the second consecu ve game, the Cardinals took an early lead but the Rams took over the game late in the second quarter as they relied heavily on their rushing a ack. Los Angeles ran the ball 42 mes in the contest. Sea le secured its sixth postseason berth in the last seven seasons with its 38-31 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football at CenturyLink Field last week. The Seahawks put up 24 points in the second half as they scored on four of their fi ve second-half possessions. Sea le recorded 31 fi rst downs and 464 total net yards of off ense against the Chiefs, while holding a 10-minute advan- tage in me of possession.

    THE HIGHLIGHTS --Arizona and Sea le meet in the regular season fi nale this week, and the Cardinals enter the contest having won three in a row at CenturyLink Field. Da ng back to 2013, the Cardinals are 4-1 (.800) at the Seahawks home fi eld. The rest of the NFL is 8-34 (.190). --WR Larry Fitzgerald threw his fi rst career TD pass last week, a 32-yard strike to RB David Johnson in the second quarter. It was the fi rst TD pass by a WR in franchise history. At 35 years, 115 days old Fitzgerald became the oldest WR in NFL history to throw a TD pass. The 11- me Pro Bowl WR now has a 135.4 career passer ra ng (2-of-4 for 53 yards, 1 TD). --DE Chandler Jones - who donate $20,000 to Phoenix Children's Hospital for each sack he records in this week's game - has more sacks against the Se- ahawks (8.5) than he does against any other NFL team. Jones has 5.5 sacks in three career games at CenturyLink Field. --Last week CB Patrick Peterson was named to his 8th consecu ve Pro Bowl. He joins Hall of Fame RBs Jim Brown and Barry Sanders as the only players in NFL history to be named to the Pro Bowl eight mes before their 29th birthday. --Entering the season fi nale in Sea le, P Andy Lee leads the NFL and is on pace to break his own single-season franchise record with a 48.6 gross punt- ing average this season. Lee established the Cardinals record for pun ng average in 2017 (47.3). --S Antoine Bethea leads the Cardinals with 130 tackles in 2018. The 13th year pro needs 10 tackles to establish a new career high (139 in 2011).
