Panthers watching Arizona versus Green Bay

The Carolina Panthers will play close attention to the Arizona Cardinals versus Green Bay Packers game

Later today, the Carolina Panthers will be sitting on their couch watching the Arizona Cardinals versus Green Bay Packers game, as the winner of this game, travels to Bank of America Stadium next Sunday to face the Panthers, if the Panthers defeat the Seattle Seahawks.

The thing with the Cardinals versus Packers game is that it is hard to say which team, from both sides, is the team that shows up.

The Cardinals have looked good all year, yet in the last week of the regular season, the Cardinals were blown out by the Seahawks.

The Packers on the other hand were hot and cold the entire season, yet looked like world beaters in the

Wild Card Game versus the Washington Redskins last week.  Aaron Rodgers looked like he was back to his old Aaron Rodgers self.

So what are the thoughts on this game and more importantly, what will the Panthers be watching for and thinking about?

To shed some light on the Cardinals versus Packers, analyst Nikki Adams from SportsbookReview.com shared the keys to this game.

“The Green Bay Packers underscored their playoff experience in the wild-card round with a win over the Washington Redskins. In the only game to feature a home favorite in the wild-card round, the Packers defied the NFL odds. The Packers draw the Cardinals in the divisional round, a game that is being touted as a redemption game for the Packers in the desert. It wasn’t a long time ago – only a three weeks ago – when the Cardinals laid the Packers to waste in Arizona. The 38-8 loss was one of the worst Aaron Rodgers suffered on the season, if not in his career.”

So with the Cardinals versus Packers game being in primetime tonight, will Rodgers once again shine and lead the Packers to victory, or will the Cardinals humiliate the Packers for the second time this season?  Remember, the winner could be coming to Bank of America Stadium.
