    GLENDALE, Ariz. Vapormax Plus Grigie . - The Seattle Seahawks storm into Arizona on a four-game winning streak, looking very much like the Super Bowl championship team of a season ago.The Arizona Cardinals, already assured a playoff berth, send a quarterback who wasnt around a month ago against a fierce Seattle defence ranked No. 1 that has given up a combined 27 points in its last four games.The Sunday night matchup has huge post-season implications.The Seahawks (10-4) can close in on another NFC West title with a victory. The Cardinals (11-3) can clinch the NFCs No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs — including the Super Bowl should they get there.Seattle loses and theres a chance, however slight, that the Seahawks dont even make the playoffs. Arizona loses and the Cardinals probably are a wild-card team.There are plenty of doubters about Arizona, even though the Cardinals have the NFCs best record. Dont count the Seahawks among them.You definitely respect a team thats won as many games as theyve won, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. They dont just win games by luck. Theyve done a lot of good things, but we feel like were on a roll and were going to keep that roll going.With Arizonas quarterback issues, Seattle is an 8-point favourite on the road in what Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald calls the biggest regular-season game of his career.It doesnt bother me, Fitzgerald said. Its not about what people think. Its about going out there and playing football, playing fast and executing.Arizona has persevered through a litany of injuries, most recently to Drew Stanton, who took over at quarterback when Carson Palmer went down to a season-ending knee injury. With Stanton out with a sprained right knee, coach Bruce Arians has turned to Ryan Lindley, signed from the San Diego practice squad after Palmer was hurt.Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett doesnt know much about Lindley.Just that hes a quarterback, and one of my favourite meals is quarterback, Bennett said.Lindley got the nod over rookie Logan Thomas, although Arians has said he would have a package for Thomas and might use both quarterbacks.I think Bruce did a really good job of letting that out, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, because he made us have to go ahead and think about all the stuff that he (Thomas) could do as well.Lindley, in his third NFL season, was Arizonas No. 3 quarterback last season and didnt play. He lost out to Thomas for the No. 3 job in the preseason.Lindley had four inglorious starts in his rookie season, with seven interceptions and no touchdowns. He holds the dubious record of most pass attempts (182) without a touchdown in NFL history.But everybody else is their starters, Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril said. They still have the same O-line ... they still have all their guys, they still have Larry, who is a heck of a wide receiver. I think anybody could throw to him and hell catch it.Some things to watch when the Seahawks meet the Cardinals:CORRALLING WILSON: When the teams met in Seattle a month ago, and the Seahawks won 19-3, Arizona held Marshawn Lynch to 39 yards rushing and sacked Russell Wilson seven times. But Wilson slipped away from the pass rush for some big plays, too. The Seattle quarterback rushed for 73 yards, 40 on one play in the drive for the Seahawks lone touchdown.Hes kind of like Houdini, Arizona defensive end Calais Campbell said. He can make people miss with the best of them. The big thing is for everybody to continue to rush him and try to swarm-tackle.SEATTLES Defence: The Seahawks defence has put up some incredible numbers during the four-game winning streak.Seattle has allowed 27 points, 752 yards (188 per game), 51 first downs (12.8 per game), 325 yards rushing (81.3 per game), 427 yards passing (106.8 per game. And Seattle has 16 sacks.After missing five games with a toe injury, Wagner has 35 tackles in the last four games.ARIZONA ON THE GROUND: The Cardinals moribund rushing game came alive the last two weeks behind the surprising play of Kerwynn Williams, who was elevated from the Arizona practice squad.The Cardinals rushed for 141 yards in their win over Kansas City and, last Thursday night, 143 in their victory at St. Louis.Williams has 175 yards in 25 carries, an average of 7 yards per attempt.HOME FIELD: Arizona is 7-0 at home this season. But there figure to be a lot of Seattle fans in the crowd as some Cardinals season-ticket holders opted to sell theirs for this game to make a handsome profit.I do remember the game here last year, Wagner said. I think there was a point where I felt like I heard Seahawks fans louder than their fans.Seattle won that game 34-22, one of only two losses at home for Arizona since Arians took over.TURNOVERS: If Arizona has a chance, it probably will need significant help from its opportunistic defence. The Cardinals have a plus-12 turnover margin, tied for second best in the NFL. Their defence has scored nine touchdowns, most in the league.___AP NFL website: and  href="" target="_blank">Vapormax Plus Viola . -- When Steve Blake checked in at the scorers table with 5:25 remaining in the third quarter, Stephen Curry shook his head and shouted across the court, asking Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson not to take him out. Vapormax Plus Blu .C. -- The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday theyve signed free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery to a two-year contract, helping rebuild a depleted wide receiving corps.BROOKLYN - The Toronto Raptors will try to capture their first best-of-seven series in franchise history and advance into the second round of the 2013-14 NBA Playoffs this evening when they face the Brooklyn Nets in Game 6 at Barclays Center.  You can watch live coverage now on TSN, TSN GO and TSN Radio 1050. Also, will feature live streaming of the fan festivities at Maple Leaf Square and the post-game news conferences. The only time the Raptors advanced in the postseason came in 2001 when they defeated the New York Knicks, 3-2. They fell to the Philadelphia 76ers in seven games in the Eastern Conference semifinals that year, but since have failed to get out of the first round the three other times they made the playoffs. "I think we understand the intensity, weve learned that," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said after practice on Thursday. "Its hard in this league because so much is on the line. Were a young team. Its a positive for these guys to go through this." The Raptors took the series lead with a 115-113 home win on Wednesday. Any win is important, but Toronto watched a 26-point lead evaporate before finally securing the victory. "We did everything wrong you could think of in the fourth quarter," Casey said. "This was a learning experience." The Nets appeared ready to pack it in as they began the fourth quarter in a 91-69 hole and had Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett watching from the bench. Somehow, the combination of Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and an unproven bench totaled 44 points over the final 12 minutes to make things veryy interesting. Vapormax 97 Scontate. Mirza Teletovic opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer and converted a three-point play on the ensuing possession to jump-start a 19-3 run that trimmed the Nets deficit to 97-91. Johnson knocked down an open 3-pointer with 3:19 left to pull even at 101-101, and it was knotted at 106-106 prior to a huge 3-pointer from Torontos Kyle Lowry. Two DeMar DeRozan free throws stretched the margin to 113-108, though Alan Andersons second four-point play of the quarter gave the Nets hope inside 10 seconds to play. After DeRozan sank two clutch free throws for a three-point game, the Raptors fouled Andray Blatche, who made his first free throw and grabbed his own rebound after intentionally missing the second. Blatches pass back to the top of the key, however, went over Williams head and into the backcourt for a violation, and the Raptors barely hung on for the win. "Hopefully, this put us on high alert," said Casey. Lowry led the way with 36 points behind six 3-pointers, including the gigantic go-ahead one with 1:04 remaining. DeRozan added 23 points and Jonas Valanciunas chipped in with 16 for Toronto, Johnson paced Brooklyn with 30 points, Teletovic added 17 off the bench while Williams and Anderson each netted 13 in the setback. "The guys fought," Nets head coach Jason Kidd said. "They put us in a position to win on the road, but we didnt do the little things." If the Nets can force Game 7, it will be on Sunday at the Air Canada Centre. If Toronto prevails on Friday, the Raptors will meet the Miami Heat in the second round. ' ' '
