These teams met just a few weeks ago and it didn’t go well for Green Bay. Last week they looked a lot better that is for sure.
Kick off is set for 8:15 PM ET Arizona looking to prove they really are among the elite now that the games count.
Green Bay Packers
Things were not looking great early for the Packers at Washington last week but once they settled in it was obvious they were the better team.
The test this week will be tougher, especially given how bad they looked against Arizona when they faced off in week 16. It was their worst loss of the season, in a game they were trying to win to secure the division.
They were a mess that day with five fumbles, three of which they lost, plus an interception from Aaron Rodgers. It was 31-0 before they even got on the board.
Rodgers performance against Washington was encouraging but I am not totally sold on what it means for another road playoff game against a vastly superior opponent, especially on defense.
Suffice it to say the Cards are very justified at the current number.
The Cards did not look good in their finale against Seattle but it was essentially a meaningless game.
They should be brimming with confidence for this one as they get to play an opponent they pounded earlier in the year after resting up last week. Unfortunately it is not enough time for Tyrann Mathieu to get healthy.
Carson Palmer has had a nice career but this will be just his third playoff game and his first was cut dramatically short.
Palmer has been so sharp all season long and with the weapons at his disposal he is certainly capable of outplaying Aaron Rodgers. He was very sharp during the regular season win against Green Bay.
Last but certainly not least the Cards are the better of the two defensive clubs. The only thing I wish they had was that one elite pass rusher because teams have been getting to Rodgers this season. Arizona dumped him an amazing 9 times in their win.
