SEATTLE – Week 7 of the NFL between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals seemed to be a regular NFL game until DK Metcalf took the league by storm and showed off just how fast he really is.
With 9:08 left in the second quarter of the game, the Seattle Seahawks were in a first and goal situation from the 4-yard line until Russell Wilson threw an interception.
Arizona Cardinals safety, Budda Baker, was the one who came up with the interception and was all but gone for a sure touchdown until DK Metcalf chased him down from about 10-yards back saving the touchdown and showing off incredible speed and effort.

When actually betting on the race, there are certain things to take into consideration. Probably the most important factor here would be to compare the 40-yard dash times between the two players.
The two times are not far off at all as Tyreek Hill posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.29 seconds while DK Metcalf is slightly behind at 4.33.
There is no doubt that Tyreek Hill is arguably one of the fastest if not the fastest receiver in the league.
He showed great speed as well in the 2019 season where his teammate Damien Williams broke loose for a 91-yard touchdown.
On that play, Tyreek Hill made a great block which allowed Williams to gain 20-yards on him. After making the run block, Hill then showed off incredible speed to catch up to him.
The odds can go either way here but for those looking to sit on the edge of their seats if and when this race takes place, bettors should be leaning towards Metcalf.
