Research Notes

  • They have also been getting much more consistent QB play. In the 1st 7 games this season, Carson Palmer posted a 32.3 Total QBR, which ranked 32nd out of 36 qualified QBs. He threw 5 more interceptions than touchdowns and went 3-4 in that span.In his last 8 games, Palmer has posted a 68.8 Total QBR (6th best in the league), and has thrown 6 more touchdowns than interceptions. He is 7-1 in that time.

  • The Cardinals send 5 or more pass rushers more than any other team in the league (48.4 pct of dropbacks). But what has really keyed their improvement on defense has been the performance of their standard pass rush (4 or fewer pass rushers). They have been blitzing much less during their last 8 games, and their standard rush has been much better.

  • The Cardinals defense has been significantly better since Week 8.

  • Russell Wilson posted an 11.5 Total QBR against the Cardinals, the worst rating in any of his 31 career starts. Wilson was 0-8 passing with a 0.1 Total QBR when under duress or hit while throwing. Wilson entered the game with a 78.7 Total QBR under such pressure, the 2nd-best rating in the league.

  • Marshawn Lynch continued his recent struggles on Sunday, averaging fewer than 4.0 yards per rush for the fifth straight week. Lynch entered Week 16 with a 3.2 yards per rush average that ranked 44th among 49 qualified rushers, and his performance offered only slight improvement. - Seattle's rushing problems really hurt Russell Wilson's play-action game. Wilson completed 2-of-10 for 36 yards and an interception on play-action passes. Wilson finished the game 11-of-27 for a career-low 108 yards, a touchdown and an interception overall.
