NFC West Preview

The NFC West should be won by the Seattle Seahawks for the fourth time in 5 years.  The Arizona Cardinals might have the best fantasy football player on its roster in David Johnson, but has a 37 year old QB in Carson Palmer and a 34 year old future HOF WR in Larry Fitzgerald.  The Los Angeles Rams are taking the next step in rebuilding around Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and recently acquired Sammy Watkins.  San Francisco is in year one of a new regime and is playing this year with their eyes set on the offseason to draft or sign their franchise QB.

In The Division   

The Seahawks are 3-2-1 against the Cardinals since 2014, including a 6-6 tie last year.  Both loses came at home.  Seattle has not lost to San Francisco in three years but struggles with the Rams, going 2-4 over the last three seasons.

Arizona is 5-1 against the 49ers since 2014, but also has trouble with the Rams, splitting their last six contests.

The Niners have won three straight against the Rams and 4 of their last six games.

Seattle does not play back-to-back road games this year.  They play the Rams in LA week 5, are on a bye week 6 when they head to New York to face the Giants.  They play the Packers week 1, the Titans week 3 and in Dallas week 16.

The Cardinals start with two roads games against the Lions and Colts.  They head to Houston week 11.
