NFL Gambling Weekend Ends With Packers And Cardinals
The NFL had four rematches from this season during wild card weekend. Two of the three games played turned out with the same results as the earlier games. All that is left for the weekend is the Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers showdown in Arizona.
The Cardinals are the defending NFC champions. Green Bay players understand that it will take a near perfect game to eliminate the champs. The Packers, however, have been playing some of the best football down the stretch.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has silenced the critics who felt that the Packers should have kept Brett Favre. In the past two months, Rodgers has been one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
As well as Rodgers has played, it is still Green Bay's defense that led the team to the playoffs. Cornerback Charles Woodson is many analysts' choice for defensive player of the year.
Arizona is a team that comes into the playoffs in a similar situation as last year. They are a higher seed, at number three, but they have been inconsistent for most of the season. Quarterback Kurt Warner is looking to recapture the magic that carried the Cardinals to the Super Bowl last year.
The Cardinals may be without receiver Anquan Boldin. He is a game time decision, and reports indicate that Arizona may have to win this game without their star receiver. Warner still has plenty of other weapons if Boldin cannot go.
