Raise your hand if you are giving the Arizona Cardinals a chance today against the Green Bay Packers.  Yeah, me either.  This isn’t to say I won’t cheer them on and hope for the upset.  You know even the most skeptical of us will be front and center and hope they can pull off what they pulled off in New England earlier this season.  Is it probable?  No.  Is it possible?  Yes.

Cards quarterback John Skelton and the offensive line will have to play better than Monday night, plain and simple.  The Cards can not squander opportunities like they have the past two weeks.  Then, obviously they have to limit turnovers.  That’s a lot to ask going into Lambeau Field.

The Cards defense needs to limit the Packers in their opportunities.  The Jacksonville Jaguars managed to stay in the game against them last week till the end.  You just hope the Cards can do the same.  Give themselves a chance to win at the end.  They can’t afford to let Green Bay get away from them early.  Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will make them pay if they make mistakes.  The Packers offense has too much fire power and are too smart to allow the Cards to get away with any kind of mistake.

I suspect it will be another long day for the Cards.  Packers 41 Cardinals 13.
