That is, unless they’re playing the Arizona Cardinals.Maybe it’s an anomaly that the Cardinals have gone 3-1 in Seattle under head coach Bruce Arians. Certainly, the road success Arizona has found in the Pacific Northwest coincides with the fact that the team has generally been pretty good the past four seasons.So when Arians called the Seahawks’ home turf the Cardinals’ own in a postgame pep talk this Sunday, he wasn’t just riling up an intra-division rivalry. He was speaking truth. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Result: The Cardinals came away with a 34-31 victory.The key play: Arizona drove 50 yards in a minute thanks to catches by David Johnson and Fitzgerald, and kicker Chandler Catanzaro nailed a 43-yard field goal with no time on the clock.Stat of the game: Johnson scored three touchdowns and rushed for 95 yards on 28 carries. He also caught four balls for 41 yards.Remember me? The Cardinals’ two leading tacklers were, you guessed it: Linebacker Sio Moore (14 tackles, 2 for loss), who is not in the NFL this year, and then-rookie cornerback Brandon Williams (11 tackles), who has two tackles this season for Arizona Remember me? Arizona defensive end Calais Campbell recorded a then-career-high three sacks.2015The context: The Week 10 showdown saw Arizona enter 6-2 and Seattle at 4-4.

During it, Stanton danced.Stat of the game: Carson Palmer threw for 363 yards and three touchdowns with a pick and two fumbles. Larry Fitzgerald was on the end of 10 of those completions for 130 yards, while Floyd reeled in seven catches for 113 yards and two early touchdowns before the Seahawks got on the board.Remember me? Arizona running back Chris Johnson took 25 carries for 58 yards with Ellington only adding 61 thanks to his long touchdown run. Meanwhile, Cardinals rookie back David Johnson didn’t receive a carry — he was on kick return duty and was almost a month away from becoming the featured back once Chris Johnson went down with a season-ending injury.2016The context: Out of the playoff picture, Arizona (5-7-1) entered the Week 16 game hoping to keep Seattle (9-4-1) from getting one of two needed wins to clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC.
