Two of the best teams in the NFC going at it in what could definitely be a playoff preview. The Cards are looking really great right now.
Kick off is set for 4:25 PM ET with the Packers needing a strong performance as much for their confidence as anything else.
Green Bay Packers
This game is important to the Pack as they try and maintain their lead over Minnesota heading into the final week of the season. They have won three in a row after a stretch that was not that encouraging.
Most promising is that the offense seems to be coming alive – they have scored 27 or more points in each of those three victories. Arizona will pose a much stiffer test.
The interesting part is that Aaron Rodgers has been good but definitely not great. In fact last week when they scored 30 against Oakland he was average at best.
He is likely going to have to be a lot more than that against Arizona which is one of the most balanced teams around this season, able to win with a potent offense or a stingy defense.
This year’s Green Bay team still has a lot to prove that is truly a contender for a Super Bowl title. We haven’t seen level much.
It is hard not to like what the Cardinals have done this season. They have won eight in a row and have already locked up the NFC West division.
They might be inclined to coast a little bit but perhaps not given they have playoff calibre opponents, Green Bay and Seattle, coming to town the next couple of weeks.
This team may not have a perfect record but I like them better than Carolina to represent the NFC.
It is hard to find a quarterback having a better season than Carson Palmer. He has already set a career best in yards and has not had a game with a QB rating under
80 all season long. Most of the time he has been well over 100.
In games that the offense might not be up to snuff the Cards can rely on a defense that is giving up less than 20ppg and is 7th in yards allowed. They have playmakers too though Tyrann Mathieu just went down for the season.
