Playoff-bound Seahawks host Cardinals before flexing into primetime next Sunday against 49ers

The Seahawks host Arizona on Sunday in a game that has significant meaning in the race for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

The Seattle Seahawks are playoff bound for the eighth time in Pete Carroll's 10 seasons in charge. 

The Seahawks host Arizona on Sunday in a game that has significant meaning in the race for the No. 1 seed in the NFC depending on what happens with Green Bay and New Orleans. 

The Cardinals lead the Seahawks 20-10 in the 4th quarter. 

But to be the No. 1 seed, Seattle must win the NFC West and that won't be decided until Week 17 when the Seahawks host San Francisco. Arizona snapped a six-game losing streak last week with an impressive win over Cleveland where Kenyan Drake rushed for a career-high four touchdowns.

Just announced on Sunday, the Week 17 game against the 49ers was flexed to primetime. Watch KING 5 for Sunday Night Football on NBC on Dec. 29 starting with pre-game coverage at 4 p.m. 

This could be Seattle's last chance against Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. There's been some speculation that he could retire.

But Fitzgerald has yet to decide whether to return for a 17th season and appears to be in no rush. 

Arizona's leader in nearly every significant receiving category will leave the game as one of the league's most respected and productive players when he does retire. 

He hugged a few Browns players and trotted off the field as he always does after the Cardinals beat Cleveland 38-24.
