The Arizona Cardinals will end the regular season at home this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. The game itself matters a lot because the Cardinals still have a chance to win the NFC West.

Divisional games are always important at the team level.

At the individual level, several Cardinals have the opportunity to reach particular season milestones or career-highs.

Take a look at some of the achievements within reach.

WR Christian Kirk

Kirk is the Cardinals’ leading receiver with 75 receptions and 939 receiving yards. Both are already career-highs. With 61 receiving yards on Sunday, he will reach the 1,000-yard plateau for the first time in his career, which comes just before he hits free agency.

RB Chase Edmonds

After missing the first two practices of the week, it appears that Edmonds might not be able to play this weekend.

If he can, he is 97 scrimmage yards away from 1,000 for the season. His 903 yards from scrimmage are a career-high after he had 850 in 2020.

Prater won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week after hitting four field goals in the Cardinals’ 25-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys last weekend.

With 27 made field goals this season, he is four away from tying his career-high of 31. He has made 30 or more field goals three times in his career.

Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports

Golden leads the team with 11 sacks. His career-high is 12.5, set in 2016. If he has two sacks on Sunday, he will set a new career-high with 13, which will also trigger a $1 million performance bonus for him.

WR A.J. Green

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

This is more of a longshot, but Green has 825 receiving yards on the season. If he has a huge game with at least 175 receiving yards, he will reach 1,000 for the season for the first time since 2017.
