The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers met each other just three weeks ago at University of Phoenix Stadium. Arizona stomped all over Green Bay during a 38-8 win. The two teams will meet again on Saturday night in the NFC Divisional Playoff once again in Glendale. Green Bay stumbled to the finish line in the regular season while Arizona got hammered in their final regular season game as well.
Green Bay went to Washington last week and won 35-18 in the Wild Card Round. Aaron Rodgers has passed for 3,821 yards, 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions for the season while finding James Jones quite a bit. Jones has 50 catches for 890 yards and eight touchdowns. Eddie Lacy has been looking better and better in the ground game with 758 yards on the ground and three touchdowns. The Packers need to find a way to protect Rodgers a lot better than they did in Week 16 or it could turn into a very similar day in the desert for Green Bay.
Arizona lost 36-6 to Seattle to end the regular season on January 3 but wasn’t playing for much having the division locked up. Carson Palmer has passed for 4,671 yards, 35 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for the 2015 regular season. Larry Fitzgerald is showing a ton of veteran leadership with 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns while David Johnson has rushed for 581 yards and eight touchdowns since taking over as the Cardinals’ lead running back. It may be hard for Arizona to pull off another huge defensive effort like they did the last time the two teams played but have a perfect blueprint for victory.
