After playing back-to-back road games, the Seahawks will return home this week to face the Cardinals.

Coming off a huge road win against the Bears, the Seahawks will return home this weekend with an opportunity to improve their playoff chances.

At 7-5, the Seahawks control their playoff destiny. With three of their final four games at home, the schedule sets up well for Seattle. The team is 5-0 at home this season, but will play their first home division game this week. Seattle is 0-3 in NFC West play this year.

Sunday's game against Arizona will be a rematch of the season-opener. Seattle had a good opportunity to win that game, but could not convert on their final possession and lost, 20-16. While Arizona started the season 4-0, it has struggled since and will come to Seattle riding an eight-game losing streak.

The Cardinals have used three different starting quarterbacks this season and will start John Skelton on Sunday. Skelton started four games this year, but has completed just 55 percent of his passes. The Seahawks defense ranks fifth in the league in passing yards allowed, but will be without starting cornerback Brandon Browner, who is serving the first game of a four-game suspension.

The Seahawks opened as a 10-point favorite, according to OddsShark.com.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Dec. 9, 4:25 p.m. ET

Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle

TV Schedule: FOX
